CAMPUS OF "Among you. the class of 1944, are the future 

OPPORTUNITY editors and stall' of th - Co! 1 rfian," a sp=al:ci 

told the freshman class yest -day afternoon. 
Anions you also arc the future campus leaders — i:i the Adelphia, 
the Senate, and the W. S. G. A. Then, too, ther are among 
you the "playboys" and "shifters" who will soon be e::- member: 
of the class of 1011. 

It is properly a matter of concern to the ad- 
ministration of the State College at Amherst 
that more than 100 qualified women appli- 
cants could not be accepted as students this Fall because of re- 
strictions on numbers made necessary by limitation of facilities 
It may also concern parents of those and other young people when 
opportunity for education is important to themselves and the 
communities where tlioy will work and live. 

Increased pressure for admittance to the freshman class a'. 
the State College will result in a new record enrollment of 365 
entering students, 240 men and 125 women. Dut this is far short 
of the number who met the entrance requirements. State College 
tuition is $100 compared to $ 150 at many private colleges. Total 
expense to a student runs around $600 a year, about half that of 
many well known privately endowed colleges. 

"Many parents have asked us," Pres. Baker says, "why we 
sannot accept their sons and daughters who are qualified for en- 
ranee. Th? bent answer Is that the student body had doubled since 
1027 ad we have been able to increase our teaching staff by only 
one-third and all appropriations for instruction by only on* 

The college has only what is given to it to do its work. For the 
;iarcnts of children and employers of young people Pres. Baker*! 
statement opens the question whether Massachusetts wants to go 
on turning away 100 qualified women students a year from its 
State College. 

Perhaps Pres. Baker speaks particularly of the women 
students because that is a more recent problem at the college, 
originally for men. But education for women is generally more 

As the years will pass — with lightning speed, say those of 
US who suddenly find ourselves seniors — the leaders of the college 
will arise. These men and women, excelling in shorts, student 
govcram 'it, studies, and cultural development, will take advan- 
tage of the opportunities that Massachusetts state College offers, i 
Freshmen, don't short-change yourselves! All of you can become \ 
biggtr men and women — socially, mentally, religiously, and phys-| 

What determines the evolution of a "dink"-topped freshman 
into a future president of the Senate or into the campus ne'er-do- 
well? No one but you yourselves. It is a matter of hard work and 
deep interest in both your college and your work. Most important, 
it depends, not on a short-lived Mash of enthusiasm, but on a 
Steady flame of endurance. In short, you must have the ffHts to 
make yourself a leader in your four years on campus, just as a 
Cross-country runner must have the stuff to win on a ifour-mile

DRAFT One of the greatest factors ever to effect college stu- 
dents will be th-' draft. Approximately 25 per cent ol 
college students fall within the age limits, and undoubtedly some 
of tin ie will be cnii mI. Desph ■ thi fad fiat enrollment may be 
deferred until July l. 1941, there is bound to be a disruptive - f 
f< . particularly if seniors have permanent jobs in prospect. 
Since they will not be able to start their jobs, the provision that 
jobs must be reopened following service will be void. 

However, we feel that college students will "take their medi- 
cine," despite a necessary revision of their plans and careers. 
This is certainly no time for weakness and vacillation, and our 
America will at least meet lire with lire.

girls who must economize is more limited. Nationally known 
women's colleges in Massachusetts draw their students from 
every state. But in most of the states from which they come 
are free state universities for those girls who cannot afford ed- 
ucation de luxe. Many such girls in this state formerly en- 
tered the teachers' college, but these have limited their numben 
since teaching reached its limits of expansion. More girls new 
of necessity look to the State College. 

Massachusetts is one of the few states never to develop a 
state university. Until about 15 years ago we had only an agri- 
cultural college. This was slightly expanded in scope to meet more 
of the interests of urban students and immediately enrollment 
leaped up from 806 in 1927 to 1650 last year, and this in spite 
of constant necessity to limit numbers. This counts the four- 
year, the two-year and the graduate school. These years have 
seen the number of women students rise sharply. 

In this same period the question has arisen of closing KMM« 
the 10 state teachers' colleges because of the reduced demand 
for teacher training. It is a reasonable question whether the re- 
lease of some of the facilities of the teachers' colleges ami tin 
great pressure upon the State College arc not appropriately to h 
considered as related problems. The teachers' colleges err stra- 
tegically located about the state. If three or four of their, v. r 
reorganized into junior colleges they could feed into the central 
State College at Amherst as junior colleges in many states feedtlw 
I state universities. Or by developing some of them as profession!) 
schools, pressure on some departments of the State Coll" "" ' (| 
be relieved. 

If the future of these institutions had been studied U 
in relation to the whole educational problem of the Stat \ I 
years ago, the question of adequate college opportunity 
en might well have been met outside the State College \ 
ling economy. It has be< n said again and again that the I 
surely come when Massachusetts will join that great m 
progressive states which offer higher education at lo 
through stale universities. Pres. linker's "explanation t" 
| suggest* that the time for it may have arrived. We havi 
a respectable nucleus for a state university if we will but 01 
and develop it for full use

for juniors and seniors, also. Any 
member Of the three upper classes 
who is interested in a position on the 
sports, literary, husiness, photogra- 
phy, statistics, or art departments 
can apply at the Index office in the

Further information on the competi- 
tion will appear in next week's Col-

Index board should api>eal to all stu-

A policy of expanding new or in- 
teresting parte of the Index and eotn- 
prescing outstanding parts will give 
State students a vastly changed type 
of yearbook. Sports fans, for example, 
will find the major sports in a stream-

through the changes and additions 
made, will have the truest cross- see

Paradoxically, the '-11 Index will be 
a BIGGER book although the page

Th«- yearly turn over in hat styles, 

best selling books, and popular bands 
is a fairly exasperating thing to keep 
up with. In all fiends there are some 
Standard perennials such as the hom- 
burg hat, the Encyclopedia Hiitanni- 
ca, and Glenn Gray's Csum Lome Or- 

chest la. 

After keeping pace with dance 
bands throughout a school year and 
then laying oil" for the summer it's a 
difficult job to step right up to the 
rail and pick one band to place and 
two to show. Hut, a bet on ('asa l.oma 
is as good as a government bond, and 
twice as much fun. Hands may com*', 
ami bands may go, but GflNi (J ray's 
twelve old men go on forever without 
any noticeable abatement of the furi- 
ous drive with which they caught and 
won the public's approval many long 
years ago. 

It will be this column's endeavor 
to introduce new bands to its readers 
from time to time, but until some- 
thing really new comes along we'll 
be very Toryish and reactionary and 
hold fast to the heritage of our fore- 
fathers (just a sign of these trying 
times) namely, Casa l.oma. We have 
absolutely no patience with imitations 
however good of any established band, 
specifically (Jlenn Miller. Outside of 
that we're very very partial to instru- 
mental bands playing instrumental 
records, and this includes just as 
many blacks as whites and a good 
many names that are not in the high- 
est and brightest lights. As soon as 
we receive records good enough to 
rave about QT band enough to rave 
against you'll hear about it right

Many Changes in Facilities as^ 

Well as Size Noted in Recent 


Far reaching changes in the farili-j 

ties and size of the student body of 

Massachusetts State College during] 
the past dozen yean were made evi- 
dent this week with the receipt of 
the fourth edition of American Uni- 
versities and Colleges, a publication of I 
the American Council on Education, 
Washington, D. C. 

A comparison of information con- 
tained in the first edition in 1928 with 
information listed in the latest 1940 ] 
edition shows that Massachusetts 1 
State College has more than doubled 
in enrollment, added six major build- 
ings and several smaller laboratories, 
undergone a change of name, offered 
a new bachelor's degree, and has en- 
rolled an ever increasing number of 
st in lints in the graduate school and 
Stockbridge School since 1928. 

The college changed its name from 
Mas itts \gricultural Collegeto 

Ms ett« State in I'"' 1 to itidi 

cate a broadening in its offerings. Its 
library has grown from 76,000 hooks 
to 116,000 voh'mes f h • •!»>■•■ ''■• on t I? 
years. In 1939 the ('"■ t h*»ehe1or of 
arts degrees were conferred upon 17 

By far the most interesting rhanpfi 
has been a phenomenal growth in 
enrollment of this 77-year-old institu- 
tion during the past 12 years. In 1938 
there were . r >fi7 undergradutes, 40 
graduate student-; and PfW st"denta 
in the two-year Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture. During the past 
school year enrollment has grown to 
1200 undergraduates, 146 graduate 
student ;, and 29"> students in the 
Stockbridge School, a total increase 
in the student body of more than 1 01 
per cent. 

Buildings constructed since 1928 
include two dormitories now being 
completed by an alumni corporation. 
These are a men's dormitory, named 
for e\-president Edward M. Lewis, 
and a women's dormitory as yet un- 
named. The roster of new buildings 
during this period also includes the 
horticultural manufactures laboratory 
in 192!>, two 4-H club buildings, the 
physical education building and cage 
in 1981, Thatcher Hall dormitory for 
men and the Goodell Library In 1986, 
reconstruction of the nutrition labor- 
atory and South College, and an in- 
firmary ward building. 

In 1928 the college awarded 108 

bachelor's degrees, h degrees of mas- 
tor of science, and one doctor of phil- 
osophy. This past Spring there were 
awarded 1*1 bachelor of science de- 
grees, it bachelors of arts, .". bachelor 
of vocational agriculture, Bfl master of 
■■I'M-.', and 6 doctor of philosophy

American colleges and universities 
are Ml the defensive. Thundered from 
rostrums, splashed on edit*. rial pages 
is the cry, "The American college 
is nothing but an extension of child- 
hood!" Frankly, there is more truth 
than rhetoric in the accusation. It is 
freely admitted that colleges must do 
much more to prepare their graduates 
for adult life. 

From educators and under- 
graduates alike the demand has 
come for activities with a "carry- 
over value". It is not often real- 
ized that Music extends its 
importanece into later life. The 
love of good music should be in- 
culcated on young people together 
with the love of literature. (In- 
deed, literature and music should 
be more closely integrated than 
they are at present.) 
At Massachusetts State College we 
are fortunate in having faculty and 
students cooperating enthusiastically 
in musical activities. Under the spir- 
ited direction of Doric Alviani, scores 
of students are actively engaged in 
making music, both for their own en- 
joyment, and that of their grateful 
audiences. If musical activities bulk 
large in the program at State, the 
singers of the Men's and Women's 
Glee Clubs are responsible. Their 
fresh, well-trained voices have 
brought brought demands for encores 
from scores of audiences, not only in 
Amherst, but on tour. The annual per- 
formance of a Gilbert and Sullivan 
operetta climaxes the year's work of 
the various vocal and instrumental 

The Fine Arts Council is a leading 
force in the musical enlightenment of 
the college. This group presents a 
series of weekly programs, featuring 
the work of a number of artists, both 
professional and amateur. Last year 
the series "From Bach to Stravinsky" 
attracted capacity audiences. 

As this column is ostensibly a rec- 
ord review, it is only fitting that we 
include a prominent mention of the 
Record Club and the Mu3ic Room. 
The Record Club, for a small annual 
fee, giants the use of its record li- 
brary to its members. For those who 
don't own a "vie", the Carnegie Room 
or the Music Room, located in the 
Memorial Building, presents a pro- 
gram of classical music every after- 
noon on weekdays. 

From this brief, incomplete cata- 
logue, it is obvious that State is 
very much alive, musically, that on 
this campus, music has achieved a 
well earned place in the scheme of 


t ion to the entering class will be held 
in the Memorial Muilding from 8:00 to 
10:00 p.m. 

Climaxing the week will be the tra- 
ditional rope pull across the college 
pond Satin day at 4:00 p.m. This 
cl issic is conducted by the Senate and 
is between the sophomores and fresh- 
men. Last year the pull was won by 
the class of 1943 (a victory much pro- 
tested by 1942).

Working one's way through college is easier said than done- 
according to Prof. A. C. Payne of Indiana State Teachers' College 
Nearly one-half the high schol graduates eager to "work their waj 
through" are unable to find employment and therefore never cofr 
tinue their education, Dr. Payne reported after a five-year study, 


Three hundred students at the University of California agri- 
cultural college are undergoing a unique "vitamin A" test to see 
if they are getting a properly balanced diet. Conducted by the 
Home Economics department, the series of tests determine 
"night-blindness" due to a deficiency of the vitamin. These tests 
are similar to those conducted at this college last year by the 
Psychology department. 

"Deah! Deah!" 

Harvard University's $143,000,000 endowment fund make* 
it America's richest educational institution. We have long wonder- 
ed whether or not the fabulous tuition has something to do with 
its financial standing. 

The Women 

A picture of the average sorority girl on the Washington 
University campus, contained in a survey in Student Life, merits 
reprinting because of its resemblance to the picture of our State 

"She conies in assorted heights, dressed and shaped ac- 
cording to latest fashion. Her wel-curled hair is becoming, and she 
will seldom rover it with a hat; but just let a suspicion of rain 
appear and she wads it up under a bandana and looks like someone 
who should be slaving in Russian wheat fields. 

"She thinks about men almost as much as they like to think 
she does, but her thoughts are not always to their credit. Rather 
often she has more dates than she wants, because that's the 
only way she can be sure to have the ones she really does want. 

"Two or three nights a week she has a more or less formal 
asked-for-in-advance-, definite-destination date. In between time? 
she may lunch or go for rides or have boys drop in. Certainly she 
spends hours on end "jellying", which she may or may not con- 
sider a great waste of time. (Jellying A campus term meaning 

an inexpensive date, usually several hours sitting in a restaurant 
over a soda or dish of ice cream.) 

"She has an allowance and usually buys her own lunch at the 
school cafeteria or an off -campus restaurant. 

"She may look frivilous, but there's a fifty-fifty chance she 
has held down a paying job at some time or other. She may even 
be the one girl in a hundred who is working her way through 
college with a full-time job. She's more apt to be the one sorority 
girl in ten who earns her spending money by working about seven 
hours a week."

Massachusetts State College will 
live and breathe football for the

men appear behind the stands as 
they trot on to the field to the 
dusk of their last gridiron tussle 
when they slowly walk back to 
the dressing room all hearts and 
hopes will be with them. The for- 
tunes of the team will be those of 
the college. 

Let me take but a moment to tell of 
a new spirit that pervades the ath- 
letic field. The keynote of each prac- 
tice session is HUSTLE. Every man is 
« the go. In the backfield where 
there are three men at every position 
the candidates for the eleven are 
fighting for starting berths. In the 
line there are few capable reserves 
and for that reason every man

started the ball around. 

The situation in the Briggs ramp 
is yet to be decided. The only men 
, who may be sure of positions on the 
I team are Captain Frank Simons, Carl 
' Erickson, Robert Mullany, Hangs and 
[ Veni Smith at goalie, and Ed Podolak. 

The Hrigg-adiers have a tough 
! schedule ahead of them. Rensselear 
I and Dartmouth have strong teams 
again this year, while Harvard is apt 
to prove a surprise with sophomore 
additions. The Connecticut Nutmeg- 
gers do not promise to show much in 
the way of a winning soccer team 
this fall, and Trinity may be weak 
because of graduation losses.

This year's team, under the direc-

Bill Kimball and Chester Putney are 
the standouts of the seven men who

Coach Eb Caraway announced 
this week that the football team 
will work out under a system of 
closed practices — — sessions in 
which no visitors will be allowed. 
This will be necesary to keep spec- 
tators off the actual playing field, 
and to prevent the "leakage" of 
trick formations. 


Football Candidates Have Been Holding Practices on Alumni 
Field Since September Ninth Strenuous Drills 

Feature First Sessions 

When Coach Eb Caraway walked 
Off the football field yesterday !,,• uas 

wearing a smile for the fust time la 

two weeks. The reason'.' Quite simple: 

his squad of gridmen were showing 

a dri- c and spirit that have not l)oen 
Been al State College for a number 
of years. 

I'or the past two weeks, Coach 

Caraway, Line Coach John Janusas, 
Coach Frigard and Emilio Daddario, 

former Wesleyan hackfield star, have 
been drilling and hammering the foot- 
ball candidates into condition for the 
strenuous season ahead of them. Jan 
usas. in particular, has worked like 
I Trojan with the lineman. The 
husky Providence Steamroller ace has 
spared himself no bodily contact in 
his efforts to teach his charges the 
fundamentals of blocking and tack- 
ling for in this field they have been 

particularly weak. 

Scrimmages during the past week 
have found the boys plunging into 
their work with pep and energy. 
Every man was on his toes, and if he 
wasn't Eb Caraway got him started. 
A bigger but better conditioned Cap- 
tain Ralph Simmons is leading the 
team this year. Simmons, All-New 
England small college choice, worked 
hard during the summer to get in 
Shape, knowing full well that he 
would he called on to play most of 
each game. The lack of replacements 
is the biggest worry on the minds of 
the coaches. The hackfield depart- 
ment is well stocked with men three 
deep, but the Statesmen can boast of 
onlv half a line. 

Benny Freitas, who plaved such 
!> bene: an game last year until he suf- 
fered a leg injury, has been shifted 
from half back to fullback. The husky 
Fairhaven boy Worked out in all the 
scrimmages and showed even greater 
plunging power than last year. Not 
to ho discounted is the well-known 
Freitas throwing arm. Coach Cara- 
way expects Bell to he heaving quite 
a few this year. A team of Carl 
Naatri and Matty llyan with Ben 

Freitas would present a formidable 
passing threat to any college eleven. 

The following men have been work- 
ing out with Coach El. Caraway dur- 
ing the past two Weekl: the seniors, 
Joseph l.arkin, Richard Curtis, Paul 
Skogaberg, Stewart Nastri, Captain 
Ralph Simmons, John Stewart; the

According to Prof. Vincent Mor- 
ns, President of the Amherst Com- 
munity Concert Association, a notable 
musical event in the form of an in- 
forms! recital by one of the great 
violinists of the world will take place

Makanovitzky, who has derived from 
his widely divergent backgrounds a 
violin technique of virtuoso scope and 
an artistic personality of brilliance 
and individuality, was born in Sweden 
of Russian parentage and was edu- 
cated in Paris.

The first of these open meetings 
will be scheduled in the near future 
and will concern a method of propor- 
tional representation voting to be in- 
augurated for student elections. Dr. 
Charles Rohr, executive secretary of 
the bureau of public administration 
will operate a dummy election. All 
students are given an opportunity to 
atend this and ;»ther meetings, and 
take part in student government. 

Dr. Rohr is well versed in the 
operation of this democratic election 
method, and receii'.ly acted in an 
advisory capacity for the city of 
Chicopee, in a consideration of this 
same method. 

It is posible that the problem of 
a community chest, rather than a 
series of miscellaneous collections, will 
furnish subject matter for one of the 
open forums. 

The new method of voting will be 
inaugurated at the regular election!

Going out "on a limb" at the very 
fust rehearsal, Bandmaster Charles 
Farnum prophestned that there is 

sufficient material now at State to 
turn out a band as line as those of a 
few years back when the Organisa- 
tion was rated with the best in the 
east. Manager Al Kldridgc was equal- 
ly enthusiastic, but stressed very 
Strongly the need of hard work and 
absolute cooperation by every mem- 
ber. Al has a very extensive and in- 
teresting program planned for the 
year and with the backing of the stu- 
dent body and the players should be 
able to turn out a unit up to the for- 
mer standards. 

The coming football season presents 
the first of the year's appearances. 
Although handicapped by the short 
period of preparation, the band will 
definitely appear at this week's game. 
All home games will of course see 
the maroon clad outfit producing its 
tricky formations. In addition, trips 
are planned for the Connecticut Uni- 
versity game at Storrs and the Tufts 
irame at Medford. Although there 

will be at least fifty pieces available, 
this number will be restricted bv »(,<■

( oncerl Season 
The remainder of the year will be 
occupied by the concert season. As 
USUal there will be three impoitant 

concerts on campus. These include 
the Christmas concert, the coin oca 

Hon appearance In March and the

HONOR Most frequently asked question in the Collegian office 
SYSTEM this year has been, "What's being done about the honor 
system?" There is to be a faculty meeting this after- 
noon, at which time the problem will be discussed, a id a "solution" 
arrived at. The Collegian will print full details next week, if an- 
nounc i 'it is not made sooner. 

CAl' '.TERIA With the record enrollment of the freshman class, 
and the addition of Thatcher Hall upperclassmen, 
the ■' ■ : !' ' is hardly large enough to serve the needs. They have 
beei 'orccd to work overtime frequently, and long - lines are form- 
ed ( itant!y. This is but one indication thai the physical capacity 
of the college has been reached. Certainly it would be suicidal to 
Contemplate any further numerical expansion without radical 
eha ires in classroom, dining, and living quarters. 

RO' 'C H begins to look as if the boys with the spurs are the 
fellows who aren't going to be bothered with the WPA 
wh( i th y graduate. Uncle Sam seems to have a 100 f r placement 
plai i.i operation. We can see Bonnie biting a piece out of a tank 
and ipitting it out in the form of horse-shoe nails now ! 

ORIENTATION A freshman the other day wanted to know if 

orientation was a study of China. After a week 
of it, we'll bet it's still Chinese, or at least Greek. If any freshman 
can absorb a battery of physical and mental exams, the strain of 
26 greetings and welcomes, daily fraternity rushing, first assign- 
ments, and the other host of activities, then lie's in the wrong 
place. He doesn't nerd to £o to college. 

Even though it is a little late to 
discuss the pros and COOS of con- 
scription, that seems to have been one 
of the popular parlor sports for the 
past few weeks. 

In line with that it is interesting to 
note that an American Youth group 
picketed the White House the after- 
noon after Congress passed the Con- 
scription Bill. Two of the signs — 
carried by girls — read: 

"Veto Conscription" "I want my 
Boy Friend at Home!" 

* * 

Rushing is in full force again, under 
a new system. Everyone concerned 
— except perhaps the freshmen, who 
have nothing with which to compare it 
— thinks that the new system will 
work to greater advantage. 

Cider, doughnuts and high pres- 
sure conversations were plentiful last 
Thursday and Saturday. One fresh- 
in said something about wearing 
lis military boots Saturday night. 
The brothers did not have a corner 
n all the high pressuring, however. 
One senior thought one of the frosh 
i'as trying to rush him. 

In another house an alumnus who 
graduated tWO years ago came in to 
i it and sample the cider, and a 
tophomore immediately started rush- 
ing him. 

* * 

Don Cadigan, head proctor at Thatch- 
er, wanted to know if he was expected 

to enforce the rushing rules. The rules 
••cad that all freshman dorms shall 
be clo led to fraternity members during 
the rushing period. Don said he sup- 
posed he could move beds out into 
the field for the 75 or so fraternity 
men who are rooming in Thatcher. 

* * 

The WS(iA must have some mem- 
bers with imagination this year. Those 
little (lowers the freshmen girls were 
carrying around in a glass of water 
all day Monday were quite interest- 
ing specimens. The campus botanists 
and the campus wolves all got a 
great kick out of it. 

If anyone is insulted by the preced- 
ing paragraph we humbly apologize 
to the botanists for apparently leav- 
ing them out of the wolf category.

COLLEGE We add our disapproval to that already frequently 
STORE expressed concerning the closing of th* 1 college store 

at seven instead of nine. We fail to see why use of 
the building by women students instead of men makes any dif- 

We have heard various reasons, one that it should be quiet 
after seven. Well, we never heard any great amount of noise in 
the store at night, and we were there often enough. And why 
should it have to be quiet for women any more than men? 

Who's doing all the campaigning for equal rights of sexes,

Force, applied with ruthless fear- 
fulness in all forms of human active 
ty and human relationships as thei 
philosophy of the governments of the. 
axis powers in Europe, is challenging 
with too much promise of success the I 
philosophy of government as it has 
been developed through the years ofj 
struggle in this country. This chal-j 
lenge of force must be met by the 
remaining democracies of the world 
if the kind of human relationships 
which have blest our lives is to con- 

It is rather difficult for the genera- 
tion of college and university students! 
of today in this country to appreciate I 
the meaning of the ruthless inhuman! 
forces controlling the action of the i 
leaders of the axis powers. Only a 
day or two ago, a young man, in tell-j 
ing me of his ambitions for a college 
experience and his plans for his life 
work, expressed some dismay ami 
some criticism of the delay with 
which he would be faced in carrying 
out of his plans as result of the ap- 
plication of the Selective Training 
and Serving Act of 1940 under which 
all young men between the ages of ; 
21 and 35 must register and be sub- 
ject to call for a year of military j 

Among other things, this young 
man said that he was not only con 
cerned but was very much aroused 
over the way in which the axis powers 
were trying to set up a new world 
order and he was positive that if this 
country was threatened every normal 
thinking young man would be ready 
to take up arms. He caid, further, 
that he couldn't quite understand why 
we were hearing no protests against 
Nazi control and rule from the people 
of the conquered countries of Nor- 
way Denmark, Holland, Belgium, 
France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia. 

His question was a reasonable one 
and there is a clear answer to the 
question which should be understood 
thoroughly by every man who may be 
subject to conscription. A terrible and 


devastating silence is being farad 
upon all the peoples of the occupied 
countries mentioned above. There 
no recourse to law in most of (hi 
countries of Europe today. The only 
law is the ruthless power of the mtt* 
police. If any person in any < .f tj, 
occupied countries dares to raise r. . 
voice in question or opposition \„. 
immediately taken in hand by tat 
secret police and either put 
concentration camp or stood agtimi 
the wall. Furthermore, he kno 
not only will he suffer, but hi- 
will be immediately subjected to ft 
secution and, in fact, his whole eon 
munity may have to pay a terribk 

It isn't conceivable that i 
people of Germany and It 
sympathetic with what their ;i .|. . 
are doing and yet a word of nroteS 
on the part of any person in either 
of these countries will bring i 
ate and terrible reprisal. I'.' 
ings among men, honest and 
social relationships, the right 
low the teachings of one's 
I body of law that should protect tt> 
individual citizen, and the right of 
a man to say anything about his l > 
D anient are not only forbidden, bai 
are considered to be false and evi 
dence of weakness. With no thought 
of being hysterical, and certainly vitl 
no thought of being afraid, sane and 
reasonable men in this country u<> 
becoming more and more convinced 
that the democracies of the word an 
facing an inescapable conflict whir 
must be fought through by mat 
other means if reason and decent 
and sanity are to be restored for I 
the people of the world. It isn't for 
us to fight the battles of the warty 
but it is our business to see that Kf 
form of government and our way d 
living are made safe and permanent 
Conscription to be followed \<\ 
factory training, in my opinion, is 
absolutely essential in this fair at 
of ours if we are to protect and pit 
serve our rights and our liberties

Life in North College is under 
way — and way under already. Bath 
tub-less and buzzer less, with the Col- 
lege Store for a front parlor, the 
temporary arrange, nents make for 
continual fun. The mirrors are es- 
pecially good — guaranteed to give the 
gals an extensive view of the highest 
top curls and maybe half an inch 
of forehead, and the art of soap swal- 
lowing in the showers has come into 
, its own. 

North College has two famous i 
spots — the Depot and the Inferno. 
The Depot, complete with copies of 
VoffUt for gentlemen callers to read, 
will be no temptation to young ladies 
who prefer stay-in dates. We expect 
the Amherst Theater will be reaping 
the profits. The Inferno, dedicated to 
cigarette smoke, is designed to cut- 
down anyone's daily toll of cigarettes. 
And what with the cooing of the 
gentle doves for an alarm clock, and 
the Orinnell aroma wafting up from 
the cow barns when the wind changes, 
life is hectic — but fun!

So all fraternities are giving vie 
parties this week end. No wonder the 
freshman coeds are asking their big 
sisters just who the boys arc supposed 
to be rushing, anyway!

Glenn Miller first captured the l u:

Placement Required 

Unusual feature of the Stockbridge 
School plan is the requirement that 
each student spend the summer be- 
tween his first and second years in 
practical employment in the field of 
his major study. Thus student major- 
ing in fruit growing are required to 
obtain employment in the fruit grow- 
ing industry, working in an orchard, 
for instance, and putting their theo- 
retical training to practical use be- 
fore returning for their final year of 
school. The Placement Service aids 
students in obtaining this summer ex- 
perience — and subsequent employment 
following graduation. 

Applicants will not lx- given a

secretary, treasurer, sergeant at-arms, on their education and experience as 

and captain.

truly great, 
erican music 






by Irving RabinoviU 
It has bM»n said many times, 
that a great people ptodWSM great, 
music. At. this point, some one usu- 
aly rises to question the Validity 
of this statement. The lack of a 
lasting body of Am- 
is pointed out as an 
objection to the principle we have 
quoted, Rut America is unique in 
the history of nations, it is a young 
nation, developing homogeneity, and 
approaching maturity. Our composers 
an- now writing good music; with 
maturity, great music will be created. 
When it is recalled how nation 
after nation has swiftly succumb- 
ed to Fascist aggression, an en- 
during place in history must he 
n to the heroic Spanish people 
the Loyalist noveinncnt of 
n. I or three jears this "Wall 
ten" withstood the savage on- 
rhl of their adversaries and 
treachery of democratic pol- 
itic ins. It Is from (his truly 
gr« t people that the composer 
Ma uel da Falla derived his in- 
spi ition. Da Falla learned from 
his teacher, the scholar and musi- 
cal historian Pedrell that music 
tha! is as native as the olive 
trees is to be obtained from the 
people the humble farmer-folk 
in the -mall isolated villages. 
Da i< ilia learned his lesson well. 
However, it would be a grave mis- 
conct -lion of Da Falla's work to con- 
sider him a collector of quaint and 
onusliaJ tunes. Mis horizon is not 
limit* I to his belived Spain. After 
studying under Pedrell, he travelled 
to I': ri . where he joined a group of 
youm: artists known as the Apaches. 
Pam at the turn of the century, was 
the scene of an artistic revolution. 
The Apaches, who included among 
their members Ravel and Stravinsky, 
were t'.c leaders in the movement. 
Da Falla speaks the modern idiom. 
Out on.- will not find in him the gro- 
tesque and tortured music of Stra- 
vinsky the Carnegie Music Collection, 
which can be heard from one to five, 
every weekday afternoon. There are a 
number of Da Falla's shorter works in 
the Parlophone Odeon Scries, recorded 
in Europe. The titles are "L'Amour 
Sorcier," "Chanson d u C h a g r i n 
d'Amour", "Sequedille Murienne", and 
"Dansc lu Jeu d'Amour". 

"Char on du ( hagrin d'Amour," 
sung b Ninon Vallin, demands two 
hearings On first hearing the song 
one I repelled by the harshness and 
pien . quality of the voice. On re- 
playi ig, however, the bitterness and 

long ig of the rejected woman is 

impr ed on the mind of the sym 
path tic listener. As Congreve wrote: 
[leaven has no rage like love to 

ha red turned. Nor hell a fury 

lik a woman scorned. 

II; If way through "Sequedille 
Mup eniU " , there is a pause, then, for 
a n nut.'. duration, an exquisite 
melo y for voice and piano. The theme 
bear the indelible Imprint of Arabic 
influ nci\ a characteristic which is 
evid< In most of the other records 
of t Si t. Indeed, it is one of Da 
Fall contributions that he discover- 
ed tl rich vein of exotic melody and 

harmony which runs through so much 

of Spanish folk-music. 

It would seem that history moves 
in great tidal impulses. At one time 
the Arabs conquered most of Spain 
and for centuries their civilization 
and culture was on a vastly higher 
level than that of the rest of Europe. 
They were finally driven out around 
the year 141)2. Descendants of these 
same Arabs were utilized by Franco 
to compter Loyalist Spain. It is not 
surprising, therefore, that the Arab- 
ian influence has been the heritage 
of Spanish music.

"The Arm-y is go-ing to hell," said the Major. 
This is not a line from the ditty, "The Mass. State Cavalry;

heard some of them laughing real | j s ^ e genera i opinion of Major H. Nason. Major Nason is 'mill-

Plattsburg for saying the whole system is stupid to the po

tary college of New England, he was quoted in the Norwich m, 
dergraduate newspaper from an article of his in Look Magazine 
"We have no army," he said. "Although warfare has 
changed enormously, we are still training officers the way 
we did in the War of 1812.

"I have been attending camps of instruction as a reserve of.

had as a junior second lieutenant — how to groom a horse, shoot a 
machine gun, pass in review. I did not hear anything about secur- 
ity against aircraft or defense against mechanization. 

"Ignorance of these two matters was largely responsible 
for the speed and ease with which the Allied armies were 
driven out of France." 

The Norwich (hiidon, in an editorial, considers the evidence 
incontrovertible. It further bases its hopes on the new and voting- 
I er reserve officers who have replaced former military science n

Although important, discipline and passing in review are 

not enough in training American Army officers. Modern 

warfare necessitates teaching of modern methods of warfare. 

In critical times such as the present, we feel sure that 

changes will be made. Perhaps, even our own Massachusetts 

State Cavalry will be mechanized. We are waiting for the 

day when tanks will replace old "Salter," "Johnson", and 

"Stewart" and when horse-jumping shows will no longer 

give our campus that aura of glamorous tradition. From 

what we hear and see of World War II, we hope that the 

Norwich editorial-writer is correct in his predictions. 

An ambitious and interesting sched- 
ule has been arranged for Social 
Union during the coming season. The 
programs will include, briefly, a bal- 
let; a philharmonic orchestra, "the 
greatest single attraction of the Am- 
erican theater," Cornelia Otis Skin 
tier; a magician; the Massachusetts 
State College Local Musical Clubs pro- 
gram; a revue, and will be concluded 
with a famous pianist in recital. 
There will be literally something 
to please every taste. 

Social Union, long a highlight in 
'the r.oeial season at State, will in- 
augurate its program series on Oc- 
tober !) with the Graff Ballet. Kurt 
and Grace Graff, who direct the ballet 
and are its principals, were each sol- 
oists in his own light he fore their 
collaboration. Behind their present 
engagements lies a severe routine of 
training in the classical ballet and 
the modern dance. 

After studying in Chicago, Grace 
Graff, then Grace Cornell, went to 

Paris to study ballet from one of the 

Imperial Exiles. After further study 
in Italy by a theatrical debut, she 
returned to America. She appeared 
in a series of performances at the 
Booth Theatre in New York, and inlment, the only thing common to us 

London, Budapest, Paris, etc. While 
dancing in London on their trium- 
phant tour through Europe, the 
(I rail's were married. 

Returning to America, they hecame 
the principal dancers in the Irving 
Rerlin-Moss Hart revue, "As Thou- 
sands Cheer," which toured from 
coast to coast. 

Today after years 
and training their 
group, the Graffs and their ballet 
have been acclaimed by public and 
press as one of the finest theatre 
dance companies of the American 

One of the Graff company's dances 
is called the 'Singing Earth," which 
should have particular appeal at 
Massachusetts State. The several rou- 
tines of this dance are "Ecstasy of 
Morning," "Tramps Thru the Fields," 
"Girl in the Wind," "Two Without 
Care," "Then Comes the Rain," "Rip 
ening Fields," 'Harvest," and "Sing-

Eventually deciding that the mod- 
ern dance held the greatest satisfac- 
tion for her, Miss Cornell gave up 
the classical ballet to study under 
Martha Graham, later becoming a 
member of her group. Her interest in 
the modern hallet definitely establish

Later Mr. Graff came to America 
to collaborate with Miss Cornell. This 
collaboration sent them dancing 
across two continents. As Cornell and

major cities in the United States, and 
returned to Europe the following year 
to fill a series of engagements in Cornelia Otis Skinner, on January 16; 


"The dance is the orginial art of 
the theatre from which all other arts 
spring. It should always be an ex- 
pression of our time, making a sig- 
nificant comment on the world about 
us today. When representing a period 
of the past, it should do so from a 
modern viewpoint. 

"The body is the dancers instru- 
ment and is capable of projecting the 
full range of emotions. Dancing 
ihoukj never be merely decorative, but 
should shape itself from an inner 
sincerity into a clear outward form 
full of meaning and power. 

"The dance is the essence of life 
itself, containing all its drama and 
comedy. It comes to formal expression 
in rhythmic phrases, and projects it- 
self. When words fail, movement be- 
comes eloquent."

Replacing the poorly lighted and 
somewhat unsanitary Commuters 
lunch room in the basement of the 
Memorial Building is a bright, clean 
place where men commuters may eat 
lunches. The entire room has been 
redecorated, and new tables installed 
during the summer. The specifications for the 'V.\ ropi 
for the new furnishings were drawn freshman spirit 
up by Baxter Allen. 

The walls have been painted in two 
tones of cream. There are new light 
fixtures, and shelves for the lunch 
boxes, the trade mark of many com- 
muters. The new tables have natural 
finish white pine tops which will 
promote greater cleanliness.

The facilities have been arranged 
so that thirty-six persons can now be 
accomodated where twenty-eight were 
crowded heretofore. In addition the 
floor has been done over with a water-

formance, under the tutelage of his 
father, was so remarkable that when 
lie was four his family took him from 
Stockholm, where they had been liv- 
ing, to Paris so that he could study 
with Ivan Galamian, internationally 
known violin instructor. It was at 
once apparent that the child was a 
prodigy anil at the age of sight he 
made his public debut in the famous 
Parisian concert hall, the Salle 

(id I I'll II. 

This was the beginning of s Euro* 

pean career of distinguished attain 
ment. Paris heard him in annual re- 
citals and the other French cities in 
year)} tours. He appeared and WAS 
called back for re engagements in 
Holland, Belgium, the Scandinavian 
countries, Spain and Portugal. Me 
has played with orchestras under such 
world famous conductors as Pierre 
Monteux, Dimitri Mitropoules, Paul 
I'aray, Alfred Cortet, Fretas Prance 
and others. For three consecutive 
years he appeared in Empire broad 
casts for the BBC in London. Out- 
side of London, he has played in Pal 
estine, Morocco and Algiers. 

In the summer of 1989 Makanovit

irica. Passport difficulties caused by 
his very cosmopolitan nationality pre- 
vented his coming until January VM0.

A unique and curious set of block 
prints comprise the first Memorial 
Hall exhibit of the year. Produced by 

famous English artists of the Red- 
fern Color Print Society, they are de- 
lightfully modern in concept. 

These pictures are not made to com- 
pare with photographs as realistic de- 
pictions of existing objects. Rather 
are they decorative impressions of 
people and scenes done in bright col- 
ors and In t e resti ng patterns. The 

manner in which some of these Indi- 
cate action is remarkable. 

Various displays are to be shown 
throughout the college year. With 
proper study they will constitute a 
practical course in art which will be 
of definite cultural value to every stu 
dent no matter what his field of 
special interest may be.

Standard Time Returns to Cam- 
pus After Five Months' 

Return of Standard Time this Sun- 
daj at 2 a.m. marks the real begin- 
ning of another annual State grind — 
i.e., attending "vie" parties, informals. 
Military, Winter Carnival, and Greek 
Balls. "After all," says the sophisti 
c a t e d-sophomore-nhoiit-cainpus, "we 
must live uji to the country club rep- 
utation that the New Y«tit Times 
gave us." 

( For the sake of those sophomores 
. I til. who flunked Mathematics 2, 
Eastern Standard Time is one hour 
alower than Eastern l>aylight Sav- 
ing Time.) 

An pessimist who bemoaned the loss 
of one hour's sleep last spring when 
Daylight Saving Time began may 
snooze an extra hour this coming Sat- 
urday night. We rather suspect, how- 
ever, that the Perennial Pessimist 
will find other gross deficiencies at 
this friendly college. "I'll bet that 
rickety Old Chapel clock will still be 
screwy on Standard Time just like it 
was never right on Daylight Saving 
Time. What a life! If it wasn't for 
that extra hour of sleep, I'd jump in 
the College Pond." 

Abbey coeds will welcome Standard 
Time with open arms and with an 
increased pulse-rate. It will afford 
them an extra hour before the 10 
o'clock curfew to pitch woo on Prexy's 
Hill or Lovers' Lane. (1 lashing fra- 
ternity Romeos, please pay particular 
attention to this Longer Length of 
Loving.) "In time of Fall a young 
man's fancy lightly turns . . ." 

And nally the dear freshmen, who 
are always with us in spirit if not in 
mind: they will not know nor care 
whether they exist by Standard or 
Daylight Saving Time- -the Mentality 
Tests given them last week have set 
them wondering if they have a brain 
in the first place,

Juniors who wish to apply may d

tentatively selected Marguerite !;>■

which will give the necessary infor-

An increasing number of hijri 
school principals are expressing tbcii 
approval of the plan and their desi;. 
to cooperate. 

May Improve Placement 
It is hoped that this new , 
training plan will have a favoral . 
effect on the number of teachers this 
college can place each year. 

Another year of crowded musical 
activity is foretold by Doric Alviani's 
extensive plans for the various cam- 
pus organizations. The aid of a new- 
assistant should facilitate the accom- 
plishment of a fuller and finer season 
this year. This aid for the Music De- 
partment is Fred Meyer who gradu- 
ated from Oberlin College last June. 
Mr. Meyer specialized in instrumental 

Great enthusiasm was experienced 
at the first rehearsal of the men's 
glee club Tuesday night. Chief regret 
at present is the necessity for curtail- 
ing membership. Although there is 
sufficient material for a fifty piece 
singing group, finances will limit the 
club to about thirty-five. 

The choir also had a successful 
first meeting last Thursday. First 
regular rehearsal will be this after- 

noon at 4:30. The women's glee club 
will start this evening at seven. The 
tryouts will be held in Room 114 of 
Stockbridge instead of the Memorial 

The sinfonietta held its tryouts last 
evening. This group is a new activity 
this season and will be limited to a 
membership of twenty. It will be mod- 
eled somewhat after Arthur Fiedler's 
group which has been heard here on 
campus. It will give a chance for 
outstanding musicians to do more 
specialised work than has been pos- 
sible with the general orchestra of 
the past few years. 

Numerous special groups are also 
planned by Director Alviani. Some 
of these have already been introduced 
upon campus, others will be innova- 
tions this year. Three groups are an- 

ticipated in the instrumental depart 
ment. These will include a flute en- 
semble, a brass choir and a string en- 
semble. In addition, there is a chance 
for outstanding players to serve as 
special soloists. 

Several groups are also offered in 
the singing field. The men's quartet 
and double quartet (octet) will be 
organized as in former years. For the 
women there will be a quartet and a 
sextet. A mixed group of fourteen 
is also planned. This would concen- 
trate on special numbers suited for 
their presentation. It would be mod- 
eled on the groups of this sort which 
have become increasingly popular on 
the radio. As usual there is room for 
soloists in the various groups and sev- 
eral outstanding applicants remain 
from last year. 

Japanese Schoolboy Grieve Much and Write Editor of 'Collegian 9 

Concerning Most Unhonorable Situations in Hon. North College 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 
Honorable Sir: — 

Just what are to ever become of 
venerable Mass. State College? For 
many months now while humble self 
are slaving in outside world, continual 
seeing of articles in press about No. 
of women who are forced to stay at 
home and tend cows because Mass. 
State College too full. Are not also 
too full of men? 

Final blow to old alumni comes now 
with reports in daily and even weekly 
press, including AP, UP and INS. 
that North College dorms are become, 
as you say in funny slanguage of 
United States, dominated by womens. 
This are final straw that break old 
alumnuses heart. 

As undergrad of honorable Mass. 
State College, humble self have live 
in North College in what wore termed 
"siibteranian depths". In fact, best 
time of college life spent in North 
College where nobody care very much 
if liquids spill on floor or if radio 
get very noisy. Can even remember 
day in basement corridor when hockey

to dismay of janitor who are called 
"Rake" by all and sundry. 

Greatly battles ranged between 
"Whingdangs" of upper floors and 
elite of basement. Water are favorite 
weapon, which, humble self will make 
statement, is very wet after travel 

3 floors between stairway. 

Basement showers not of best, and 
in winter necissiate to run hot water 
for half hour to heat shower rom.. 

That, Honorable Editor of Collegian 
are North College of recent years, 
now in process of being put asunder 
by invasion of coeducationals. 

Now, suppose, women will make 
complaint that there being no inter- 
room communication, no secluded 
nooks for wooing men, no silk drapes 
on windows, and no bathtubs for soak- 
ing. And are sure that one telephone 
booth on main floor, which in good 
old days never work anyway, will not 
fulfil needs of women. 

Especally humble self feel sorry 
for Nap, the barber. How are he to 
feel when women stop in shop on way 
to room and dread fashion page in- 
stead of ask him how Sox do? 

All in all, terrible situation now 
uppermost at Mass. State College. 
Humble self all upset. 

Hoping you are same.

out for football as well, used his l."»l

truck in, out, and around the city of 
Worcester. Chet Putney, best miler 
last year, worked on a farm in his 
native Vermont; Russ Mac Donald

to build himself up. Bonnie Freitas 
Wrestled 200 pound beer kegs and 
fruit crates as he handled the truck-

Some of the recent graduates had 
fine summers too: Warren Tappin, 
for example, showed Maryland base-

ers up in these hills as he hatted ft 
cool .28o under the unfamiliar Hood

reports have him teaching school in 
Groton, Mass., but he told us last

Albin Irzyk is in the army after a 
summer in a Salem clothing store as 
a salesman. Hob Joyce, captain of last

Both clubs are out to win this one ami

Line Suffers 

The Statesmen are suffering acute 

ly from a lack of line replacements. 

This situation has been rendered even 

more serious by the injuries sustained 

by I'aul Dwyer and Carl Werme, the 
tackle*. Werme may yet be able to 

play, but Hwyer's appearance in the 
game is extremely doubtful, SO Bill 
Mann may take over the position. 


Springfield, on the other hand, has 
a flock of backfield men listed among 
the ailing. Turner, Rose, Hargraves, 
Gurney, Josephson, and Dockham all 
have suffered mishap* Of one sort or 
another. Miller, a green runner, and 
Sholes, who has shown some fair 
panting ability, may take over in the 
Springfield backfield. 

Strong Line 

Opposed to State's inadequate line 
is a strong well balanced Indian line 
with replacements three deep at every 
position. This Springfield line may In-

Fast Despite Weight 

Despite his bulk Ralph is a fast 
man on a gridiron. In fact, the bar- 
rel-chested guard has caught many a 
ball carrier unawares as he appeared 
from nowhere to haul down his foe. 
Offensively, he has speed enough to 
stay with most backfield men for the 
first 1") yards, "and by that time I've 
already thrown my blocks," asserts 
the big blond forward. 

Simmons realizes that lack of re- 
placements and his responsibility as 
captain will put a double strain on 
his physical condition the coming sea 
son, and he feels that his summer- 
work has been good training. His job 
was to drive a truck for a Pittsfield 
ice cream firm and in the process of 
loading and unloading, he continually 
tossed around five-gallon containers 
of ice cream. As a result his off -sea 
son fat pads disapjiea red and his 
muscles regained their proper tone. 

Last year opposing coaches usually- 
forced to play : kept two men on Captain Simmons 
in the season on every play, and even then it was 
a common sight to note the Pittsfield 
boy finding his way into an opposing 
backfield after his quarry. This year 
with a still more powerful Simmons 
on the right side of the State line, it 
may be sound football for opposing 
mentors to direct their plays at some 
other portion of the Maroon and 
White forward wall.

l^ast year, over one hundred 
freshmen played football. These 
boys were given costly equipment ; 
they were given the valuable time 
of a coach. It seems to me, that 
of those hundred who signed up 
for the sport as part of their 
physical education elect ives. at 
least a major part would continue 
with the sport in their sophomore 
year. But instead of finding this 
happy situation, I discover only 
twenty one sophs out for the 
varsity team. 

Kven this unhappy problem can be 
looked on in a brighter light. This 
handful of sophs composes just about 
half the entire football squad. What 
has happened to the juniors and sen- 

iors? I don't know 

do you?

This Saturday as the State grid- 
ders play host to the Springfield 

Gymnast*, Larry Briggs will trot out 
his Varsity soccer i:ani against a 
veteran blessed Rensselaer squad at 
Troy, N. Y. Even at this late date 
Coach Briggs will find it difficult to 
name the man who will be in the 
starting lineup. Carl Erickson, junior 
letterman, is nursing a sore right 

foot but will probably be at center- 

half. Captain Frank Simons will be 
at left half while the right halfback 
post may go to senior Bob Baring or 

Sol Klaman who is accustomed to 
playing at an inside berth. Not to be 

overlooked I* Stan Glsienaki, rugged 
sophomore from Hadley. Stan will 
undoubtedly see action in the game 

whether starting or not. 
The fullback position* are well tak- 
en care of by two boys who learned 
their soccer at Williston Academy, 
Provided they are in tip-top condition, 
Clem Burr ami Kd Podolak may be 
forced to go to the full eighty-eight 

minutes because of the lack of ex- 
perienced reserves. Burr, a depend- 
able hooter, will play stationary full 
while sophomore Ed who already is 
showing the same Speed and power 
that made his brother Stan All New 
England fullback a few years ago 
will be roving full. 'Woody' Jarohson, 
may be in the starting lineup in place 
of either Burr or Podolak. 'Woody' 
can cover a big patch of territory 
arround the goal and his height is a 
definite asset in heading the high ones. 

Vern Smith who has done remarkably 
well in recant practice sessions will 
defend the cage. Smith is not only 
fast, but seems to possess a sixth 

sense which enable* him to guess the 

direction of shots from the field even 
before the ball is kicked. 

The forward line may be made up 
of 'Red* Mullaney and Steve Papp 
at the wings, 'Little Jim' Callahan 
and 'Gibby' Arnold at the Inside posts 
and Spenee I'otter at Center forward. 
Other men who have shown much 
promise ami who may see much action 
in the forward Wall include 'Monk' 
Meyer, Jimmy Stewart, Tommy John- 
son, Russ Hibbard and Mitch Rod 
man. Backfield reserves include Rod 
mayor-, Brown, Kaplan, and Bangs. 

The spirit and fight of thi.; year's 
squad is characteristic of Coach 
Briggs' previous teams; the men have 
been striving to beat each other to the 
ball, and every man is sincere in his 
efforts to make his Opponent work 
'•very inch of the way. If this spirit 

prevails on Saturday afternoon the 
Briggadiers may pull the unexpected 

and bring home the bacon in the form 

of a win over the power f ul Engineers 

and avenge the whitewash adminis- 
tered last year by the Rensselaer 

The chief handicap in this first en 
counter will not be the lack of good 

men, or the lack of the will to win, 

but the short time that Briggs haR 
had to find the liost working combin 
at ion of hooters. One* the season is 
underway we can hope to are a win 
ning team.

Tentative Plans Call for Half 

Hour Broadcasts Each 


The Seeing Eye 
by Milton Weissberg 

You know, when a fellow gets to 
college, he sort of enters into a rather 
sheltered existanee. Everything is reg- 
ulated so that his life can be as 
completely developmental as possible. 
Everything is set up so that he enters 
into his little niche in the college 
world, his little niche at State, for 
example, bounded by Thatcher Hall, 
the Amherst theatre, the Berkshires, 
and a long road back home, and 
escapes from the outside world. 

Things are happening every day. 
We know they are happening. We 
know they are important things, that 
they are vital happenings, vital to 
our future existence, yes, things which 
actually are a question of life or death 
to most of us. And when we use the 
term life or death, we mean just ex- 
actly that, life or death. It is definite- 
ly important that we should know 
what is going on. Unless we keep 
clear in our minds what the situation 
really is instead of gradually get- 
ting out of touch with world events, 
some of us will have to come down 
to earth among the ordinary mortals 
with a very hard bang; perhaps in 
the very near future. A casual 
glance at the headlines of the papers 
spread on the "caf" floor cannot re- 
sult in a very intelligent analysis of 
the news of the day. 

Still, week after week will pass, 
and due perhaps to the rigidity of 
your schedules that is all that most 
of you freshmen will get. There are 
far too many other things of more 
pressing importance that you have to 
do, like learning that the fancy way 
to say Buckwheat plant is esculentum. 
So, this column bases its claim 
to existence on your crying need to 
know. This column will attempt to 
give you an informal analysis, rather 
synthesized through necessity, of the 
weekly happenings in the outside 
world of our little haven of refuge. 
If we become boringly unreadable 
kindly refrain from throwing rocks at 
us when you meet us on the campus. 
If we offend anyone, well, just offend 
us back, and see if we care. 

Well, I suppose you are interested 
in how Adolf and Benito and Co., Inc. 
are making out in their adventures. 
Adolf is still banging away at Lon- 
don with all he's got. It's been a year 
now since he announced the fourth 
partition of Poland, and gave Joe 
Stalin his hunk to chew on. In the 
last year, dear little Adolf has done 
a sweet job of altering the map of 
Europe, has changed directly the 
lives of millions of people, and ended 
the lives of no one knows how many 
more, In one year, Adolf scaled the 
"impregnable Maginot" fence, whip- 
ped across "lay down and die" France 
and is now engaged in shooting spit- 
halls at Papa Chttrchill from French 
border porta, and sending across his 

eagles to swoop down Into the grounds 
of Buckingham palace, and thumb 
their noses at King (Jeorge. 

Still, Britain claims that in spite 
of da mag e tO London, <|Uote, "The 

Injury to our war-making capacity

wouM seem that Adolf is beginning to

sort of makes one think that the 

Germans perhaps are planning a 

drive on Gibraltar through Spain. 
Gibraltar is threatened, the Suez

ing hard, fighting to gradually bring 

Britain under the Nazi yoke along 

with the rest of the oxen, and make 

her aid in pulling the big Nazi wagon. 

Will the Axis be able to do it? If she 

does, can we depend on her to stay 

away from this hemisphere? When 

he gets England, perhaps Adolf will 

reform, and decide to become a dear, 

sweet, nice boy. Perhaps we could 

reason with him and convince him 

that our climate would he bad for his

Well, the first steps toward a nec- 
essary dictatorship have been taken 

last week. F.D.R. signed the conscrip-

otherwise, between 21 and 85. It real 

ly is grimly pathetic that we fought 

so hard just a short while ago to 

"save the world for democracy," and 

what we really did was sow the seeds 

for dictatorship in the greatest coun 

tries of the world. All that we can 

hope and pray for is, that when the 

world comes back to normal again, 

our cherished American way of life- 
will not have been buried under so 
large a pile of banners saying "God 
bless America." "We want no ism but 
Americanism," and "Thank God I 

am an American," that we will be 

able to salvage it by the excavating 
powers of the United voice of our 

Now, a few items of passing inter- 
est. The American institute of Pub- 
lic Opinion's preelection poll of last 
week shows Mr. Roosevelt to have

electoral votes as compared with Mr. 
Willkie's 78. A rather un-exciting 
Massachusetts primary day on Sept. 
16 set up Governor Saltonstall unop- 
posed in his party's primary. Have 
We got our own worries? And how. 
The president of the Export Import 
Bank of America, Warren Lee Pier 
sen, is now in Argentina attempting 
to solve some of her problems and es- 
tablish an Anglo-American -Argentine 
trade plan which would be able to 
thumb its collective nose at Hitler 
Europe. Sounds good, don'tcha think. 
What's going to happen before we 
go to press again? We hope nothing 
too radical to our settled, orderly ex- 
istence, here at State. We hope that 
if anyone drops an explosive bomb 
on us, it lands in the College pond, 
and not on the nice, brand new Lewis 

Hall. If it drops on your eorreepon

Tentative plans now being consid-

A student committee has been

plans to announce a competition for

made to the tower-room studio. These 
improvements are designed to add to

Convocation Held 


Two hundred and seventy-seven 
students attended the opening con- 
vocation of Stockbridge School yes-

beck welcomed back the seniors, and 

Daniel Seistito, the president of the

Doric Alviani led the students in 
singing the school songs, and then 
divided up the students for harmony 
work and chords. Director Verbeck 
then introduced President Hugh I'. 

President Baker spoke about the 
changing times and a changed world, 
about the importance of this date in 
the history of our campus, and the 
place of Stockbridge School in the 
College. He also offered a few words 
of advice to the entering men and

speech seem to be applicable to the

and some of these happenings seem

Important that we should try to 
maintain our equilibrium and go for-

the same interest and zest with which 
we approached the year's in school 
before coming to this campus. Let us

Last Thursday, the honor system 
was abolished, and a substitute pro- 
vided. Saturday morning, the honor 

council resigned in protest to the ac- 
tion. Their statement, and the ac- 
tion of the faculty Thursday, are 
printed on page 4 of this issue. 

Student feeling in the matter was 
that the alternative system had not 
been thoroughly worked out, and that 
there was no place for student coop- 
eration. It was not generally under- 
stood that an attempt was to be made 
to evolve a complete system, since the 
faculty included no details of opera 
tion, enforcement, or organization. 

The proposed system will permit 
great latitude in the administration 
of examinations, at the same time 
retaining as many features of the 

idealistic honor system as possible. 
The student committee, yet to be ;i ;> 
pointed, will make suggestions which 
will be considered by the administra 

tion for Incorporation into the sys- 

Although there is strong feeling 
among Student! and faculty alike, it 
is expected that theer will be s coop- 
erative ami mutually approved plan 

devised. There is general regret at 
the passing of the honor system, but 
general agreement that it has not 

been completely successful. 

The honor system was adopted at 

this college in 1920, by joint agree- 
ment of the faculty and students. 

Its weakness hinge on the fact that 
students were required to report all

Collegian Poll Indicates Coeds 

Want Boy Friends to Stay Home 

With the tenth annual Comunity 
Concert Association campaign going 

into the home stretch, a brief des- 
cription of the programs in store for 
this year and a little history of the 
movement might be in order. 

■\s announced by Doric Alviani in 
last week's convocation, the drive 
got under way officially with a meet 
ing of all workers ut the Lord Jeff 
Sunday evening, included were 46 

State students. After a buffet lunch 

eon, the annual busine meeting got 

under way with a "]><■]>" tali, by the 
campaign chairman, Mrs. Rogers. At 

the conclusion of the meeting, the 
workers were treated to an exception 
ally fine concert by Paul Makano\it- 

zky. A newcomer to this country, Mr. 

Makanovitzky proved to be an nut

■eemi to be the theme song of a sur 
prising percentage of the Massachu 
sets State Colcgo coeds according 
to statistics from the poll of stu- 
dents in Convocation last Thursday. 
And what's more, we don't believe 

that Reap Year had anything to do 
with it! In all seriousness twenty six 
per cent of the girls at this College 
Opposed the draft of the- fellow mem 
ben of their generation. Maybe it's 
the maternal instinct the smypa 
thetk revival of that old, now time 
ly, tune, "I didn't raise my boy to 

be a soldier." Or could it be that 

the coeds look forlornly at the (ios 
sible picture of a beautiful campus 
in the spring minus the horde of 
these males "of age!" 

In any case, "figures don't Ire" 
and in this case "liars didn't figure," 
SO the fact remains that this per 
Centage of women not in favor with' 

the draft compares strikingly with! 

the fact that only nineteen per cent 

of tin men itudents over twenty -one I 
opposed the movemnt. 
Also as might be expected, the 

males under 21 were not as opposed 
to the draft as the eligibles, being 
only 14*4 in opposition. 

In all, 7!)n' students were polled in 
one <,f the most complete attempts 
ever conducted. 

The total results wen-: in the 
presidential balloting, Willkie and 

McNary 501, Roosevelt an I Wallace

all aid to England short of war 629,

Amherst college conducted a simi- 
lar poll last week, with practically 
identical returns „s far as IsSUSS of 
Conscription were concerned. 

Comments f , r , all policies and all 
sides were preesnted. One student 

expressed a common opinion with, 

Training without war, or war with

conscript ion 

"Rv helping England we help our- 
selves." "Cut all ,;;\ taps which slows

1940 STYLE? 

"October 16, a day of national mourning! Pre- 
pare to have demonstrations, parades, mass 
meetings, and other forms of protest on Regis- 
tration Day. On Registration Day demonstrate against this act 
which gives Fascism its first major victory in America!" 

Yes. they're in again. We heard that same line of drivel last 
spring when the Youth Committee on War attempted to stage 
demonstrations on Patriots' Day. On that occasion we decided to 
hav ■ a little patriotism instead, and we're still in the mood. 

If the parlor pinks and dilettante radicals want to mourn, 
that's all right with us. We're trf the opinion that Uncle Sam isn't 
the loser. But when they begin to speak for American youth, and 
college youth in particular, we want to object, and we do! 

Eighty-two per cent of the students at Massachusetts State 
College favor conscription. The same proportion holds at Am- 
her f College! And no pseudo-youth organization can deny the 
fad that there is majority approval of the act among college stu- 

We quote again, and we brand this statement as an absolute 
lie, "Despite majority opposition to conscription by the people, 
the bill passed." 

We have one answer. Right or wrong, blessed or damned, — 

HONOR You can't have your take and eat it. The honor sys- 
SYSTEM tern died in 1988 when the students voted to remove 
the necessity to report violators. The system was a 
freedom, but the reporting was the responsibility, some form of 
which accompanies every freedom. Therefore the students ac- 
cepted the freedom, and evaded the responsibility. 

We'll not except the faculty, either, Last spring the council 
received a minimum of cooperation, if any at all, in attempting 
to gauge faculty sentiment. And it is well-known that some pro 
feasors have never conducted the system here. 

Well, this week we're burying the corpse. We're throwing 
out the system, but not the honor. It's up to every student and 
faculty member to demonstrate that fact. 

The honor system as the official 
•xamination system of the Massachu- 
setts State College met its defeat at 
lie hands of a faculty majority last 
week. It has often been said that we 
kivc only one standard to judge by 
—ourselves. It is interesting to note 
that a large number of the faculty 
intend to keep on as though the 
honor system were still in force.

To those few on campus whom 
Bob McCartney has not nailed since 
Monday morning we communicate 
the following story: 

Bob: Guess what I found in the 
middle of my room at 7:00 this morn- 

Us: We dunno. 

Bob: Well, I heard a thundering 
on the door this morning and when 
I got my eyes open there was a big 
pile of gold braid in the middle of 
the room. The long arm of the law 
held out a speeding summons and 
said why the (censored) don't you 
wake up in the morning. 

<!'. S. We don't get the point 

The Soccer team ate lunch before 
the game at a Howard Johnson's in 
Albany. Pop Simons ordered vanilla 
ice cream for dessert. Th<- waitress 
with a disgusted look: We're famous 
for 2!> different kinds of ice cream 
and you order vanilla- 
Monk Meyer was the only one with 
Sail enough to order vanilla after 
that, and he had to have it embellish- 
ed with a cherry. He flirted with 
the waitress so much that when she 
came hack with the ice cream she 
told him that she would give him a 
nickel so he could call her up in a 
couple years.

The favorite indoor feminine pas- 
time last week seemed to be the pro 
cess of steeling one's self for Fhysi 
cal exams — every coed in sight was 
making more of a fuss than usual. 
We hate to take the obvious enjoy- 
ment out of worrying about the whole 
thing, but a Collegian reporter inter- 
viewed the young doctors and frank- 
ly, they were — like Queen Victoria — 
not amused. After all, as they said, 
what with twelve young ladies an 
hour, pink scanties are NO novelty 
— and the freshmen, who had the Ab- 
bey resounding with shrieks of ner- 
vous prostration, were labelled "very 
nice young children"! 

One of the doctors expressed his 
ideas on State feminine pulchritude 
by saying, "I expected to find whole- 
some farm girls." We guess he was 
disappointed to find no evident marks 
of hard farm labor, poor man — but 
he saved himself from permanent 
social ostracism on the campus by 
adding that he found them instead 
surprisingly good looking and well- 
dressed." Where, we wonder, does he 
get that stuff with those vest pocket 
edition angel robes'.' 

So anyway, gals, relax. Don't even 
bother to get your heartbeat off kil- 
ter next year. It isn't worth it be- 
cause, sad but true, you were not ap- 


time a plane is heard. Oh, Boy- Do 
we envy her. 

We've seen remarks about North 
College and its feminine inhabitants, 
but nothing really struck home until 
today when a young man inquired 
of Nap how he could get hold of one 
of the young ladies. A few minutes 
later we found four of the coeds 
playing bridge in the college store. 
Don't coeds play bridge after 7:00? 

One of the soccer team remarked 
that he would have liked to see the 
football game. Someone who heard 
him, replied that the only thing he 
missed was the cheer leaders. 

Au revoir 

Ed. Note: This is the last straw, 
you're fired. 




, l» I'ett 
| iturreca 

My record rack is still wait; 
something to stick between it 
and until the time in the vei 
future when the postman, . 
man, or some cooperative soul does 
knock on my door with a heavy par- 
age in one hand and a pencil ii ; • 
other, I'll just have to stick 
things that are being thought a ,,, ; 
said on the subject of dance haiw. 
and dance music on this campus. 

Quite a few people who have tlu 
ane idea that anybody who writes or. 
a certain subject is an oracle on tu- 
subject have been asking a few (! u.., 
tions on many things musical, an! | 
would like to answer some of 
people to the best of my ability. 

Yes, the military Ball Come 
can spend $200 for a band but have 
not as yet contracted one. They haw 
in mind the Barbary Coast Ban<i 
from Dartmouth College which 
ed a very satisfying dance on th.* 
campus last year. But, the Btrtttrj 
Coast Band is definitely not wori 
$200 of anybody's money, least nf a'. 
ours. So committee plans call for a 
reduction in the price of tickets .:' 
thfl band is contracted. The other 
band considered is Larry Funk, Thr 
Band of a Thousand Melodies. But. 
it will probably end up by being 
neither one of these possibilities. 

No, if the Winter Carnival Ba! 
Committee makes money on the af 
fair it still can't throw it into a bet 
ter band. $450 is still the maximum 
al'owed for any band on this carr.pu.v 
This fact remains regardless of the 
fact that last year's Carnival Ba! 
Committee turned approximately flSti 
back into the kitty. About the only 
way you can touch it is to waste it 
on decorations, when that extra hur 
died or so is exactly the differed 
between a good band — such as ■! 
have been lucky to get, and an ex 
cellent band, such as we have really 
never had, all reports to tb 
trary. We pride ourselves on ha vim: 
had bands on the way up, befw 
they are famous, but I don't see much 
to be proud of in having a band ur> 
here while it's testing men and ideas 
and then claiming to have had ' 
band that makes musical histmy 
or two years later. Well, tint's 
an idea anvway. 


Again it becomes our province to welcome 
this campus the student body of the Stock- 
bridge School. Since 1918 Stockbridge. u a 
separate and distinct division of the College, has been provi 
vocational training in Agriculture and related fields. A more i 
cent supplement to its program of instruction is the Hotel Stfr 
warding course. 

Its graduates, by their success in these fields, have (pvet 
ample proof of the value of the training they have received. T 
the Stockbridge Freshmen we sav you should be proud t<» be I 
member of such a school. Do not hesitate to publicize you; pi 

Stockbridge School training does not lead to a degree. Be- 
cause of this fact the School is sometimes frowned upon bj 
minority in the four year college course who compare and do ' ' 
think. Their frown should be regarded for what it is worth. It is 
true that Stockbridge training is not "academic," but it is equal- 
ly true that for a vocational school Stockbridge is second to BOI* 

In another sense, may it not be regarded as a tribute to the 
industry of Stockbridge students that they can achieve in W 
school years and one summer what some of us cannot achieve ' 
four years, namely, a capability for doing the task for **^ 
they have been trained, and, a place to do it. 

We wish the Stockbridge Freshmen particularly to feel tl 
are welcomed to the "College Family" of which Preside I 
speaks so often. May Time grant you the success vou dea rve

The time-honored Metawampe Club, 

i outing cluh of the State College fac 
I ulty, now has a definite part in the 

maintenance of ■ nationally known 
\ mountain trail. According to John 
1 II. Vondell, a member of the College 

Faculty and chairman of the New 
I England Trail Conference, n< gotia- 
I tions were completed this summer 

whereby IS miles of the Appalachian 
: Trail in Western Massachusetts is 

now under the maintenance "f the 

Metawampe Club. 

The Appalachian Trail, longest 

in the United States, starts at Mt. 
Katahdin in Maine, crosses the state 
of Maine, traverses the Carter' and 
Presidential Ranges in New Hamp- 
shire, follows down the Dartmouth 
Outing Club trails, then enters Ver- 
mont. It extends across Vermont to 
the Long Trail Lodge, then goes 
south 100 miles. It enters Massachu- 
setts near North Adams, follows over 
Mt. Greylock, goes down through 
Dalton, October Mt. and Beartown 
Forests and finally leaves Massachu- 
setts at Mt. Everett, doing south, the 
trail ctosses Connecticut, enters New 
York over the Hear Mt. Bridge, and 
then completes the trip at Mt. Ogle- 
thorpe in Georgia, a total distance 
of 2050 miles. At least three men 
are known to have hiked the entire 

The Metawamjie Club's section is 
easily reached over U. S. Route 20 
where the trail crosses the Jacobs 
Ladder Highway at the upper end 
of Greenwater Pond in Hecket. The 
Club's trail extends north of Route 
1 20 through October Mt. State Forest 
7 ' - miles to Washington Town Hall, 
South of Route 20 the trail follows 

i 1 - miles to Tyringham. 

In Massachusetts, the S2 mile Ap- 
palachian Trail has heen maintained 

by the Mt. Greylock ski Club and 
the Berkshire Chapter, A. M.C of 

Springfield. The division came at 
Route 20 with each cluh ceding a por- 
tion of (heir trail to give the Meta-

A record total of 92 men were giv-

to Manager Alton B. Cole. 

This year the cluh will be much 
larger with a home club of 60 voices. 
| 32 will be formed into the Varsity

of-town appointments. There will be 
a reserve of 16 men from which va-

An innovation this year will be 
the donation of $1.00 by each glee 
cluh member for the purchasing of 
music. Rehearsals will take place 
Monday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30 
and Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9

A pathetic picture of a small ratf- 
#e<l boy, his nose pressed to the 
window of a confectioner's shop, his 
hungry eyes fastened to the luscious 
display of illuminated wares, is the 
heartrending depiction of want that 
artists utilize to snatch crisp "fold- 
ing money" from the pockets of phil- 
anthropists around Christmas time. 
Something Of the emotion that fills 
the hungry urchin seizes us as we 
discuss the technology of record mak- 
ing. You see, this column depends 
for its existence not only upon an 
eager public, (suppress those sneers, 
Philistines) but also on the record 
companies, who submit records for 
comment. As we k<> to press, not a 
single record has been forwarded and 
consequently, this column has been 
suffering a veritable famine of 

The source of your columnist's 
difficulties dates back to 1877, 
when Thomas Edison invented 
the phonograph, using cylindrical 
records. About ten years later, 
Emile Berliner patented the 
gramaphone, playing disks instead 
of cylinders. It is interest- 
ing to glance back at an adver- 
tisement of the Edison phono- 
graph, which claimed: "It perfect- 
ly reproduces the human voice- 
JUST AS LOl'D-just as clear 
just as sweet". lx>t us see how 
this phenomenon was achieved. 
Until the early twenties, the pro- 
cess of production was a rather crude 
one. The artist stood before what 
looked like the open end of a meg- 
aphone and sung, or played away. The 
sound travelled down the horn, and 
struck a diaphragm at the small end. 
The shivering diaphragm then trans- 
ferred its vibrations to a stylus or 
graver which cut them into the re- 
volving wax disk. It is from this 
wax disk, called a positive master, 
that the record is made, finally. From 
the wax master, which is perishable. 
a negative copper master is produced* 
(To clear up the technical jargon, 
a positive is a record which will re- 
produce the original sound vibrations. 
The image of a printed page in a 
mirro ■ is analagous to the negative 
record.) Prom the negative copper 
master a nickle matrix is formed, 
from which, in turn, a negative chrome 
stamper is pressed. The stamper 
squeezes an impression on a thin 
dough composed of shellac, slate dust 
and ; crap record, which hardens to 
produce the positive record, the end 
product. The function of the phono- 
graph was to reverse the process and 
send the voice of the performer out 
through the open end of the horn. 
But the music produced by the 
records of those days, was as 
mu-h like the original as Abe 
Lii coin's homeopathic soup (Re- 
cipe: Boil the shadow of a started 
pigeeS) for an hour) is like your 
number's chicken soup. The art- 
ist i were producing sounds vi- 
brating N to 12000 times a sec- 
ond, but the graver was rending 
only the sounds vibrating from 
220 to :i.">00 times a second. 
In the early twenties, a group 
under J, 1*. Maxfield, in the research 
department <>f the Western Electric 
Company partly remedied the situa- 
tion and discovered the methods 
under which modern records are made. 
The sound waves emitted by the per- 
former were transformed into electri- 
cal impulses, as in the telephone, were 
amplified many times, converted hack 
into sound and allowed to vibrate the 
graver. With this system, waves with 
a range of from 80 to 5500 vibrations 
a second were recorded. Following this 
a phonograph was produced that re- 
versed the process. It consisted of 
an electromagnetic pickup, a tube 
amplifying unit and a loudspeaker. 
It is obvious from the foregoing, 
that each refinement of the science 
of record-making is designed to snare 
more and more of the elusive waves, 
to impress on the delicate wax not 
only the fundamental waves, but

Athletic Managers Are to be 

Selected by Vote of 


Little known and perhaps little 
appreciated is the manager of a sport 
team at Massachusetts State. How- 
ever, the coach, the captain and play- 
ers do realize how important for the 
proper functioning of a team are 
the services of this member and are 
usually outspoken in their judgment 
of his worth. 

In his position as sport manager 
he is a member of the Joint Com- 
mittee on Intercollegiate Athletics 
which acts as the governing board 
in athletics, granting varsity letters, 
shaping the athletic policy of the 
institution. He is in contact with the 
managers of other institutions with 
an opportunity to make friends and 
to gain much in the way of business 

The Joint Committee on Interco'- 
legiate Athletics has made several 
changes in the method of selecting 
port managers and has recently pub- 
lished the regulations which are now 
in effect. 

Following is a resume of these 

Candidates for assistant manager 
in each sport report at the opening 
of the season to the manager and 
are told about their duties which 
continue throughout the season. 
Point Basis 

At the end of the season each can- 
didate is graded on a 600-point basis 
which includes the following items: 
captain's rating, tOO points; coach's 
rating, KM) points; manager's rating. 
KMl points; amount of work hours, 
10(1 points; examination, 2<M) points. 

The rating scale used by the cap- 
tain, coach and manager is made up 
>f four parts, each counting 25 points 

personality, ( prration, ability to 

carry out instructions, and initiative. 

One hundred points are given to 
the candidate reporting the most 
work hours and other candidates are 
credited proportionately. 

Within two weeks of the close of 
)lii> season each candidate is given 
a written examination by the director 
of athletics. Marks are reported at 
(lie next meeting of the Joint Com- 
tnittee on Athletics and the Com- 
mittee Secretary determines the final 

The student body makes the final 
choice of the assistant manager. All 
candidatei receiving a grade of 75% 
or more are eligible to have their 
name's appear on the ballot. One week 
before the election which is conducted 
by the Senate names and grades of 
the candidates are published in the 

Following his term as assistant 
manager, the successful candidate 
automatically becomes manager the 
following year. 

hardest of all, the overtones, which 
distinguished a Caruso from a Kansas 
hog caller. The latest step is the 
vertical cut record which carries 
waves from 80 to 10000 cycles. These 
records and the equipment to play 
them are used by radio stations, whero 
the announcers refer to them euphem- 
istically as "electrical transcriptions".

"Mother! Mother! slip a strait-jacket on me! 

Well, it happened this way. . . On Page two in the Boston l' n . 
iversity News we are reading Mr. "Deadline Divot" who write* 
that one R. O. T. C. junior officer fainted after 50 cubic cent- 
imeters of blood was taken from his arm in the physical exam 
at an army base. This treatment by the U. S. Army leads tu 
to beleive that B. U. students would become allergic to military 
training. But on page three we read that, where last year only 
82% of the students in the College of Business Administration en- 
rolled in the basic R. O. T. C. course, this year 95% of the students 
are lugging Springfields on their shoulders. 

In this season, as leaves turn red, we see red. Pardon us if 
we are bored with four years of college, especially in fall. 

Every year, in some college paper, we see the same editorials 
which tell us bombastically for several paragraphs that

is becoming more monotonous to drag through the same rou- 
tine of pledging freshmen . . . wining them, dining them, 
patting them on the back, handing them a frat pin, and then 
walloping the tar out of them with paddles et al. — yup! the 
same et al. Monotonous is the word. But in several New Eng- 
land college newspapers we find the same "witty compositions" 
in the same newspaper columns, which are written by some 
aspiring sophomore unable to recognize puns as old as Shake- 
speare's bones.

Amherst College, like this college in 1920, still has Required 
Chapel for its young seekers-of-knowledge. Mr. Brooks Beck, '41. 
Esq., writes in his coly-um that he is "bored, impatient, and 
unreceptive at the Chapel services", and that the services are 
"futile, empty, indignation-arousing, rotten, unimportant, hypocri- 
tical, boring, delaying, meaningless, futile (again!), dull stupid, 
a waste of time, a waste of money, a waste of energy. . . " 

We may add that it is hellish to get up out of a warm bed at 
the unearthly hour of 7 a. m. 

Deans Recommendation — Council Resignation 

Following is the text of Dean 
Machmer'a recommendation to the 

faculty last Thursday afternoon. 

Recommend that the conduct and 
supervision of all examinations shall 
henceforth be the responsibility of 
ihe faculty. 

Since the student body generally 
has the most genuine Interest in the 
gentlemanly conduct of students In- 
dividually and collectively in inter- 
student ami inter-faculty relation- 
ships, it is further recommended 

The present members of the Honor 
Council, and their successors to be 
chosen in accordance with the meth- 
od prescribed in the Constitution of 

the Honor System now in effect, shall 
with the I »ean and two additional 
members of the faculty appointed by 
the President of the College consti- 
tute the administrative committee 
charged with the responsibility of 

fostering and maintaining the high- 
est possible standard of honor not 
only in examinations but also in all 
other faculty student relationships. 
It shall be the duty of this committee 
to handle all cases of dishonesty re- 
ferred to them by students or mem- 
bers of the faculty. 

fore assuming his present duties. Dr. 
Cray's background serves as a guar- 
antee for his capability as a speaker 
and lecturer on religion. 


The Dean's Offce requests that all 
freshmen who have not yet filled 
out editor's card for the college news 
service do so immediately. 

Relow is the resignation of ' 
Honor Council which was ottered last 
I Saturday and accepted by the Senate 
Tuesday night: 

To the students of Massachu* r- 
State College: 

We, the members of the Honor 
Council, were elected by the student 
body to administer the Honor

The Current Affairs Club is a 

group which plans to get together 

at least once each month and consid-

the world at the time. This is done 
through speaker and discussion. Rob 

itics, governmental policies, anything 

concerning "history in the making" 
is open to consideration. Many well 
known nun have been presented and 
more are anticipated for this year's 
program. Organised is at present in 

the hands of the nucleus of last

this group up to the place on cam 
pus which it deserves, Unquestion- 
ably, it's function at this time is 
doubly important in reference to the

tinging material available this vear 
and the need for curtailing all or

stantial growth for all groups. 

The choir will have now a mem 
bership of fifty five. This group has 
already started preparation of its 
numbers for the weekly vesper scrv 
ices held each Sunday afternoon. In 

questionably the Introduction of the 

choir as a regular feature of each

years, later in the season the choir 
will present several special concerts 
A number of appearances will be 
made alone sad several more in con 
junction with the other musical clubs. 
Increase in the men's glee club 
membership will be from the pies 
ent thirty six to fifty. This will give 
more depth of tone so essential for 
the excellence of such a group. The 

women's glee club also will be increas- 
ed to fifty. And similar Improved 
performance is expected from this 
group. The former membership was 
thirty six. It is hardly necessary to 
relate the extensive and intensive 
program so successfully completed 
by these groups | ast yi<ur Needless 
to say, with increased instruction aid 

in the music department, even great

Another important possibility will 
be that of a combined 1, r ,() voice en

Spanish Club 
A new organization has made its 
way into the extracurricular list of 
activities at Mass State. The first 
meeting of a Spanish club under the 
direction of Dr. Charles E. Fraker 
was held on Tuesday evening. October 
1 1040 in the seminar room of the 
Old Chapel. The club owes its ex- 
istance to the desire of Doctor Fra- 
ker's advanced Spanish class to gain 
mure profiency in conversation with 
the Spanish idiom. It was agreed that 
one of the most delightful and in- 
teresting approaches to Spanish would 
he through a study of the songs 
poems, literature and dances of Latin 
America, and that future meetings 
WOttld have this study as a program 
basis. It is hoped that eventually the 
entire meeting will he able to bo 
carried OB in Spanish. Milton Weis- 
sberg was elected chairman in charge 
of future programs.

Frosh Girls, We Ask: What Type 
Are You Going to Be, A, B or C? 

To think of it! 300 foot-loose and 
fancy free Freshmen roaming around 
campus. Now anything can happen — 
most probably a social revolution. Of 
course upperclassmen are bee-lining 
to the Abbey. 127 new co-eds are 
something to buzz about. We bet the 
boys from '40 to '44 are losing sleep 
trying to decide which girl to ask to 
Amherst week-end. 

And the gals themselves are in a 
quandry wondering how to act and 
what to do. Well, some of them are. 
We realize that others are not ex- 
actly the type who listen to bedtime 
stories, and, like superior upperclass- 
girls, could get around blindfolded. 

But for the benefit of all involved, 
we have collected extensive data and 
reduced it to three brief classifica- 
tions. After a thorough study of 
these, coeds shall know how to make 
what impression, and e<js can deter- 
mine whether or not to weigh down 
that flighty little number with a fra- 
ternity pin. Any resemblance or sim- 
ilarity in the following to real per- 
sons — living or dead — is neither an 
accident nor purely coincidental. 

Type A 

Type A is a Home Ec. major and 
believes a college education leads to 
things matrimonial. She wears an- 
gora sweaters, cameos, and flared 
skirts. She joins a sorority because 
she loves people. She knits in convo 
cation and specializes in waltzes. She 
subscribes to Mademoiselle and tells 
her mother everything she has done. 
She likes some men. 

Type B 

Type B is a Latin major and be- 
lieves that a college education leads 
to things cultural. She wears some- 
thing — no one ever notices what. She 
joins a sorority for a place to live. 
She enjoys museums and specializes 
in making conversation. She reads 
the National Arckeologieal Magazine 
and tells her professors everything 
she has done. She likes nice men. 

Type C 

Ttf/m C is an Economics major and 
believes that a college education leads 
to things social. She wears lame 
blouses, wide belts, and short skirts. 
She joins a sorority to make connec- 
tions. She adores windy weather and 
specializes in tangoes. She always 
buys the New Yorker and tells her 
friends everything she has done. She 
likes men. 

So now, you know. 

Now is The Time 

But before you Freshmen give or 
receive anything — including little 
fraternity pins and invitations to 
Amherst week-end — we insist that 
you decide what sort of Freshman 
you are going to be for all the time. 
We refuse to have you grinding one 
week and going social the next. As 
college students, you should always 
be consistent. It makes things so 
much easier for the psychologists. 

One Way 

The first method is to study and 
to study terrifically hard. Stamp on 
all desires to try out for the football 
team, the glee club or the Roister 
Doisters. Avoid the opposite sex as 
yon would poisin ivy — unless you 
discover someone who can write high 
grade English themes. Never attend 
Social Union or the dancing class. 
The same goes for vie parties and 
basketball games. Hard? Temporari- 
ly, yes,- -but listen : 

If you have the intelligence of a 
moron and study and study until 
you dream of printed pages so clear 
ly that you can study in your sleep, 
you will not only make the Dean's 
List you will make (op Dean's List 
N'oa- very few people make top Dean's 
List and practically no Freshmen 
do, so the appearance of your name 
in that scholarly column will cause 
I sensation. Sophomores will consid- 
er you their equals. Dr. Glick will 

devise new intelligence tests for you. 
The faculty will marvel and exclaim. 

But this is only the beginning. You 
will return the following September 
to find that your reputation (like 
everyone else) has gained weight 
during the summer. Professors are 
only too happy to let you take un- 
limited cuts. After all, the poor 
dears do not appreciate a genius in 
their classes to tell them how often 
they are wrong. You need not even 
study because the profs will always 
give you A-f's from force of sugges- 

So, for the next three years, you 
can devote part of your time to 
achieving prominence in campus or- 
ganizations and a larger part to 
dates and things. You will not only 
receive a liberal education but grad- 
uate with honors as well. 

And Another Way 

Then there's the opposite approach. 
Don't study at all. Don't even buy 
books, or if you already have them, 
tie them together to make a doorstop. 
Whenever you find that there is not 
a dance or concert or meeting to at- 
tend at State, traipse over to Am- 
herst or Smith and drink in a bit of 
atmosphere. Join the Choir, the De- 
bating Club and all the rest of them. 
Sit up until 2:30 a.m. at bull ses- 
sions. To top everything off, get your- 
self elected to the Collegian stafT and 
then you will either flunk out or come 
so darn close that it is hopeless to 
even think about studying second 
semester. And life becomes gayer 
than ever. Easy? Temporarily, yes, 
— but listen: 

If you have the conscience of Fu 
Manchu, you will repent during the 
summer and come back to school with 
resolutions to get good marks, or at 
least not to flunk any more courses. 
You have a serious talk with your 
major adviser and really begin to 
feel enthused about learning. But 
you are up against it. The boys or 
girls at the House still expect you to 
act like the life of the party, and 
you do not want to let them down too 
suddenly. The professors, under the 
same impression, always give you 
D's — from force of suggestion. 

But this is only the beginning. 
If you grind away for the next year 
or so, your friends will begin to help 
by never asking you to go places 
anymore, and your professors may 
begin to realize that you are a little 
above a border-line case. They may 
even condescend to raise your mark 
to a C. However, do not expect to 
graduate with your class. This hap- 
pens only in very rare instances. 

A Happy Medium 

Of course, there is a happy medi 
um— if you can afford it. That is, 
to study one year and play the next, 
thus taking eight years, or as many 
as you wish. But, obviously, there 
would be no advantage in this plan 
for, if you had that much money in 
the first place, you might better en- 
roll at Hamerst or Skipmore and 
major in honeymoon bridge or ski 
jumping. It is done by the best people, 
you know. 

In the event that none of these 
methods appeal to you, there is one 
remaining choice. If a gal, flutter 
your eyelashes at some hard work- 
ing graduate student who will marry 
you as soon as he gets his degree. 
And if you are a gentleman, we ad 
vise you to take that job Dad offered 
you in his store and settle down with 
a Type A coed. Instead of railing 
cain, you can raise children and 
gladioli. In five years Dad will give 
you the store and you will become a 
prominent figure in the community. 
As a solid citizen, you are certain to 
become involved in politics, and soon- 
er or later you will be sent to Bos 
ton, a senator. Then you can vote to 
convert State into a university.

Lots of news, of things happening. 
You want to know about them ? Well 
I'll tell you. 

Last week, a very serious and 
powerful pact was enacted. The three 
great Fascist powers of Europe and 
Asia, namely Italy, Germany and 
Japan, have united to bring about 
a "new world order." Terms of the 
pact are the following: 1. Europe is 
the sphere for conquest by Germany 
and Italy. 2. Asia is the sphere for 
Japan. 3. The three nations are to 
unite in action if any of the three 
is attacked by a "power not involved 
in the present European war or in 
the Chinese-Japanese conflict." 

Great stuff — great stuff. The 
boys are ganging up on us. They 
feel that we ought to stay out; 
in fact, they are determined that 
we shall stay out, otherwise it 
might prove just a little bit dif- 
ficult to shove that "new order" 
down the world's throat. Of 
course, we also want peace. We 
want peace, and then Congress 
appropriates ten or twenty more 
million, or is it billion, for Nat- 
ional Defense. Of course, they'll 
have to eventually come out with 
the truth, but even though the 
truth is staring right at us, the 
average American refuses to see 
it, and still sighs "peace, peace". 
Right now it's hurry, hurry, get 
ready for war, under a mask of 
National Defense. Equipment be- 
ing prepared now will certainly 
not he allowed to rust and be- 
come obsolete, while waiting for 
bogey-man Hitler to cross three 
thousand miles of ocean and say 
"boo to us. Soon the United 
States will decide to get insul- 
ted, and then we'll be in there 
"with both dukes flying." 
Now, for some choice bits. Italy 
and Germany are just about ready 
to swoop through Spain on to Gibral- 
tar. Mussolini and Hitler have pro- 
mised Spain that she may have Gi- 
braltar to play with, once they get 
control of the Mediterranean. Japan's 
action in landing troops at the port 
of Haiphong, Indo-China, in spite of 
the warning of the American Govern- 
ment certainly brought action from 
Uncle Sam last week. President 
Roosevelt issued an order effective 
October 16 which forbids export of 
all types of scrap iron and steel ex- 
cept to Great Britain and the Western 
Hemisphere. Since ninety percent of 
Japan's scrap iron and steel comes 
from the United States, Japan got 
"good and sore," so there. The Ex- 
port-Import Bank of America an- 
nounced a loan of twenty-five million 
American dollars to China. This got 
Japan still more "good and sore." 
United States puzzle for the week: 
Japan or Germany, — which? 

The R. A. F. continues to swap 
blows with the Nazi air arm. Last 
week British fliers struck at the Tem- 

l plehof Airport, the Schoenberg rail 
road yard, power plants and ordna&ct 
factories. The Berliners as well u 
Londoners are living, never knoeiaj 
when they'll wake up and find them 
: selves dead. 

Frenchman was pitted against 
Frenchman, last week, when a eonvoj 
of British controlled Frenchmen pit. 
ted itself against the German French- 
men at Dakar. After a bitter battle, 
British Frenchmen withdrew, lawn 
in a Chess Game, poor Frenchmen. 
The Italian army is already seventy 
five miles deep into Egypt on its way 
to the Suez Oanal. Fascist pressure 
is being put on King Farouk of 
Egypt to turn Fascist and declare 
allegiance to the axis. Farouk ha> 
replied by arresting sixty thousand 
Italian residents as a possible Fifth 
column. Good work, Farrie old man, 
good work. 

Now for some national bul- 
letins. Records for voluntary 
peacetime enlistment were brok- 
en last week at the recruiting 
stations of the United Btatai 
Army. Registration day will soon 
be here, October 16, you know. 
Besides the bases we received foi 
over-age ( ? ? ? ) destroyers, plan- 
are now being made for a defense site 
to be located in Newfoundland. 

After a trip in which he made hu; 
dreds and hundreds of speeches, an 
which carried him into every vit: I 
political district in the country, pre- 
idental candidate Wendell Willki- 
returned to his Fifth Avenue fa 
last week with a sore throat and a 
firm belief in himself as "the 
destined to save America from total- 
itarianism." "I want to give laboi 
jobs," he said, but neglected to state 
whether he would call them W. P. A, 
or what. 

Last week, sixty-thousand men n 
vari-colored uniforms made up an 
American Legion Convention in 
Boston. The theme of the conventi< I 
was National Defense, but all eye 
witness reports indicate that the 
original purpose degenerated into a 
contest to see which member could 
absorb the most "spiritus frumenti." 
A few of the more serious delepat' - 
managed to take time off from riding 
around in choo-choo trains, harmon- 
izing together in raucous fashion and 
generally shocking staid and puritan- 
ical old Boston, long enough to pa>> 
resolutions urging "every practicable 
aid to Great Britain." The Legion 
also declared itself united 'as an "Am 
erican Column to fight the Fifth 

Columns to the right of us 
coulmns to the left of us. We now 
close our own private little 
column for this week with hum- 
ble thanks to Dr. T. for his well 
deserved criticism of last week 
regarding our error in usage of 
the Linnaean system of binomial

Indians Boast Veteran Squad 

— Maroon Bootera May 


Sports fans on campus this week 
will be treated to a great exhibition 
as the Maroon soccer team plays host 
to the Dartmouth Indians on Alumni 
Field, Saturday. With the football 
team travelling to Storrs a large 
crowd of football rooters will be out 
en masse to cheer the hooters. 

Dartmouth conies down with a 
team made up largely of juniors who 
played as a team last year, losing 
five games by a 3-2 score. This year 
with practically the same squad tak- 
ing the field for the Green and 
White Dartmouth expects to roll up 
an envious record. Yet the Statesmen 
too, are out for laurels this year and 
a fast, driving battle is expected. 

Dartmouth as yet has not played 
any scheduled games while the Brigg- 
adiers lost a close one to Rensselaer 
last week. With this one game's ex- 
perience under their belts the locals 
feel that they have an advantage. 

Refusing to comment on the out- 
come, Briggs says that the game is 
apt to go either way. The team 
strengthened by the return of half- 
back Erickson is in great spirit and 
will be out for a win.

that several of the lads were peeved 
because I did not come out with a 
prediction for the game. Just to sat-

somewhat fantastic score of 19 to

callous little frosh wants to be the 
first to shout it to his fellows. 

It seems to Die that every single 
student of Massachusetts State Col 
lege would be proud of his school, 
would build it up Instead of push it 
down. How about just a little spirit, 
frosh? Whether State liar, a good or 
bad or indifferent team should make 
not a particle of difference. The im- 
portant thing is that the team is a 
part of YOUR school and a part of 
you. Cheer that team, give it the ben- 
efit of your support in every possible 
way. When they lose, point to the 
game ahead . . . when they win, 
chalk it up. Then you'll find that you 
won't ever have to speak of "moral 
victories." With a loyal student body 
behind it, no team can lose. 


Fast, Shifty and Experienced Nutmegger Backfield Expected t<> 
Trouble Statesmen with Running, Patting Locals 

Will Have Edge on Hanks 


('apt. Kimball and Putney 

Certain of Starting 



Captain William Kimball and 
Chester Putney have already clinched 
places on the varsity cross country 
team that meets Northeastern in 
Boston on October 12, Coach Llewel- 
lyn L. Derby declared yesterday. 

"However," continued the genial 
harrier mentor, "five other places on 
the club are wide open and we won't 
know until next Monday's final time 
trials just who will make the trip 
besides Kimball and Putney." 

Greene Faster 

He pointed out that Brad Greene, 
not yet in the tip top condition that 
the two veterans have been exhibit 
ing in daily workouts, is getting fast- 
er every day and "should" make the 
team. Mo Leland is recuperating 
from a tenacious cold that has him 
sniffling at every third stride. David 
Morrill finds chores at the college 
store interfering with proper train- 
ing. Rus MacDonald must cut time 
trials to hustle over to Draper Hall 
to feed the hungry freshmen. So the 
story goes. 

Time Trial 

Hut Eric Greenfield and Dick Hay- 
ward as well as Harold Mosher are 
slowly loosening up and, along with 
the candidates engaged in inconven- 
ient work, will face Coach Derby's 
starting pistol by the north end of 
the Physical Educational Building 
Monday afternoon to fight for the 
Open places on the Statesmen's cross 
country force. Putney, pressing for 
fast time Monday, turned in a 21 :4. r > 
clocking for the varsity course that 
any man will have to topple off the 
season's books before beating the 
rangy lad from up Vermont way. It 
should be a sparkling, fast race. 

With the first mmeet still more than 
a week away, the Statesmen are try- 
ing to be in the best of condition for 
the grueling course at Franklin 
Park, Boston, where they meet North- 
eastern on October 12. 

A slightly battered State football 

eleven Invades storrs Saturda) to 

(five battle to a strong but aching 
Connecticut. The Nutmeggeis will he 
rated tops in this contest by virtue 
of one of the fastest anil shiftiest 
backlields in I 'Conn history, with 

veterans Rorvath, Mitchell, Walt 

man and Donnelly. 


This game, from all indications, 
will be one of the bone crushing var- 
iety, with two hard charging lines 
at work. Both teams boast strong 
starters at the tackle and guard posi- 
tions. For the UConns, Silverstein 
and co captain Pnpanns will play the 
guard positions, while the Statesmen 
will start with ('apt. Ralph Simmons 
and McDonough. Androsko and 
Booth are slated to start for the 
Nutmeggers at tackle, and they will 
be opposed by Carl Werme and Paul 
Dwyer if his leg injury is improved. 
Week End 

The Statesmen are expected to 
send a good many of their attacks 
through the center of the Connecticut 
line where only one man, Wizoreck 
will he carrying the burden of the 
game. A line weak at the ends is 
likely to cause the Nutmeggers no 
little trouble before the day is over. 
End sweeps are the order of the day 
for the State attack with probably 
quite a few passes. 


In fact, the air is expected to be 
filled with tosses by both teams. Bob 
Donnelly, who caused the Statesmen 
plenty of trouble last year, has no 
peer as a passer in small college 
circles and will be out there throw- 
for the UConns again, with four very 
good pass receivers on the other end. 

The Statesmen will probably come 
up with one definite advantage over 
Conne c ticut. Despite the versatility 
of the Nutmeg backs, there is not an 
experienced kicker in the lot. This 
weakness will decrease the crTectivo- 
ness of the UConn attack. In an ex- 
change of punts, Paul Skogsberg, ace 
punter for Massachusetts, will gain 
yardage for his team every time. 

Another slight edge the Maroon 
may hold will be the backfield de- 
partment, strangely enough. Connect- 
icut is sadly lacking in good reserve 
hacks, while State will have the be- 
nefit of pratically three full back- 


Experienced Men Bring Smiles 

to Face of Coach Derby 

This Week 

"Six men out for freshman cross 
country last year, and this year I'm 
sending a total of eighteen boys out 
over the course every afternoon!" 
said Coach Llewellyn Derby yester 
day afternoon b etween broad grins. 

"And, what's more, a large part of 
the eighteen aspirants for the frosh 
team are seasoned cross country men. 
Yes, I look for a team from these 
boys that will be much stronger than 
the usual first year outfit." 

With only one full week of prac- 
tice behind them the cubs do, indeed, 
step along at a confident, strong clip 
that promise ill tidings for the Am- 
herst frosh in the first meet on Oc- 
tober 18 at Amherst. For example, 
Roland Freeman, graduate of An- 
dover Academy, has a 4:42 mile to 
his credit already; Lloyd Fitzpatrick 
ran track at Wakefield High; W. 
Earls Newton was a cinder man at 
Millrose High; Ray Hollis, from 
West Boylston, has run ten mile road 
races and «hould find the 2 710 
course well ■ ithin his grasp; Charles 
Rogers was a x-country runner at 
Medway High. 

Last Saturday Coach Larry Hriggs 
and his varsity hooters invaded the 
Rensselaer battleground and although 
losing .'! 2, the local s<|Uad turned 
in a very encouraging game. Consid- 
ering the fact that the newspapers at 
Rensselaer gave the Statesmen little 
chance against the Engineers, it be 
comes very evident that the soccer 
club is headed for a good season as 
shown by the fine brand of booting 
displayed at Troy. 

Starting just a bit shakily, prob- 
ably because a great part of the Op- 
ening lineup was Com pos ed of men 
playing their first game in varsity 
uniform, the Brigg-adiers gave way 
when Hartnell, Rensselaer's brilliant 
center forward forced his way 
through and drove in the first tally. 
A few moments later Sp inOS Rotter 
picked up a loose ball ami evened up 
the score. 

In the second half, Hartnell again 
penetrated the defense and drove 
home the second goal for the En 
gineers. Red Mullany, State's left 
wing, who played a great offensive 
game, evened the score when he 
scooted down the sidelines to grab a 
fast pass from Captain Simons and 
boot it past the Rensselaer goalie. 

The lack of seasoned substitutes at 
this time began to tell, and the En- 
gineer's outside right, Wilms, scored 
his first goal in four years of col- 
legiate soccer to give R. P. I. the 
fleciding marker. 

Outstanding in the State offensive 
wen- Mullaney and Potter, who scor- 
ed both goals, and also Jim Calla 
nan, Wat Ackroyd, and Cibby Arn 
old. Excelling the fine play of the 
forward line was the performance 
turned in by the Massachusetts de- 
fense. In this first eaine, Larry 
Hriggs saw in Ed Podolak and Stan 
Gisienski two nun who are definitely 
slated for All-New England honors, 
since both are hut sophomores. Stan 
seemed to be all over the field, and 
not until he was struck in the face 
by a loose ball was he removed from 
the game fi>r a short time. Podolak 
roamed about the area in front of the 

cage, sending long boots deep into 

enemy territory. These two men can 
not bo given enough credit for the 
way they fought back their oppon 

Captain Hop Simons played his 
usual reliable game at his lefthalf 
position. Solly Klaman, Clem Burr, 
and Woody Jacobson also did well 
from their backfield berths. A great 
factor in resisting Rensselaer's at- 
tempt to score was Vern Smith the 
local goalie who stretched his long 
body across the goal mouth to toss 
numerous goal attempts out into the 
clear. Bombarded though he was 
Smitty held up when pressure was 
on. Lambie Erickson, veteran half- 
back was still sidelined with his foot 
injury but will be ready for the Dart- 
mouth game on the home field this 
Saturday afternoon.

Graff Ballet Comes to State Next Wednesday 
In First Presentation of Social Union Series 

Continued from Page 1 

The second number on the program 
introduces Grace and Kurt Graff in 
"Con Vivo," an abstract dance of in- 
troduction done in a light, carefree 
manner to music by Scarlatti. 

"Garden Party," a satire on the 
boredom of a mythical king and 
queen with their social duties, and 
the superficiality of society, is the 
third ballet. In it the entire company 

The Graffs make their second ap 
pearance on the program in "Ro- 
mance," which is danced to the ac- 
companiment of music by Satie. 
"Ode to Living," the group's newest 
ballet, uses the entire company. It is 
a dance of two women who meet 
death — one whose taste for life has 
scarcely awakened, and the other 
whose over-eager love of life finds 

realization only in death. The inter- 
woven theme is the persistent pulse 
of life springing from the passing 
tread of death. Mr. Graff dances two 
roles in this ballet, the role of "Death 
and of the Last Lover." Grace Graff 
dances the "Daughter in the Street." 

"Renaissance," done in the mode 
of the Borgia period, "Vintage of 
DJ12," and "Singing Earth" conclude 
the program. "Vintage of 1912" is an 
impression of early American rag- 
time with a medley of popular tunes, 
featuring the Graffs and seven of the 
corps de ballet. 

Students may use their Student 
Activities tickets for admission to 
the event. Faculty may be admitted 
by special tickets which are now 
available at the treasurer's office. The 
price for these tickets, which are 
good for the entire season, is one dol- 
lar and fifty cents.

Writer Discusses 


Marshall O. Lanphear 

C. William Duncan, well-known 
journalist, at this morning's convo- 
cation discussed several of the fa- 
mous persons he has interviewed in 
the past few years. He also related 
some of hi.! experiences in covering 
numerous sensational news stories. 

Mr. Duncan's life is typical of 
many newspaper men now famous in 
the business. He started out as a cub 
reporter, and worked his way up to 
his present position of feature writer 
for the Philadelphia Evening Public 
Ledger. In his present position he is 
a well known figure in the newspaper 
world. He is also well-known here on 
campus, for he has made se\eral 
previous visits. Probably many stu 
dents will not remember him, for his 
last visit was about five years ago, 
at which time he made a lasting im- 
pression upon his audience. 

Several members of the faculty and 
friends attended a luncheon given j n 
Mr. Duncan's honor at the Faculty 
Hub at the Stockbridge House after 
his lecture.

lsogon, a senior honorary society 
for women, has been formed at State 
College, it was announced today by 
the president of the W.S.G.A., Miss 
Evelyn Bergstrom. Dike the Adelphia, 
the society will consist of seven sen- 
iors whose names will be announced 

The body will be formed along the 
same lines as the Adelphia, At the 
close of the school year, the active 
members will elect four prominent 
senior women, not already members, 
to their group. At the same time 
seven juniors will be selected in order 
that the EsogOU may be perpetuated. 

Isogon will be purely honorary in 
nature and its functions will be sim- 
ilar to that of the Adelphia, in that 
these coeds will be trying to improve 
and mold student life on campus in 
a <|uiet, unassuming fashion. The soci- 
ety will concern itself primarily with 
increasing the importance of the 
coeds at Masachusetts State College. 

The first seven seniors will be 
chosen by the W.S.G.A. but after 
that, the society will operate inde- 
pendently of tlie government body. 
Students will be selected on the basis

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

An occasional radical serves a valuable function in any so- 
ciety by forcing the majority constantly to examine its position 
Mid defend its values. If the majority position is based on truth, 
it will emerge stronger from questioning. If it is based on false 
assumptions, questioning should start enough thinking to pre- 
pay the way for its eventual change. That is what the president 
of N w England College meant last year when he said, "A few 
Communists are a good thing for any campus." 

I don't think that the editor of the Collegia* would deny this 
pro tftion; yet the editorial "Slackers 1940 Style?", by implica- 
tion, denies it wholly. If radicals are to have a fair hearing they 
mus have more than the technical right of free speech, they must 
hav. an open-minded audience. Last week's editorial was cal- 
culated to arouse emotions and prejudices that close men's minds. 
Wit'i self-styled patriotism, the editor calls "Slacker" at the min- 
ority which opposes conscription. 

Although 1 personally favor conscription, I feel that in tak- 
ing this action, we must encourage reason, calmness, and Open- 
mv ledness, in order that the minority can be heard. The worst 
acti m that those who favor conscription can take is to label their 
op;, inents "Slacker." As this country moves toward war, there 
will be enough flag waving by the politicians, enough emotional 
on 1 -sts on the part of the populace, and enough name calling 
in the yellow press. Under such circumstances it it is the duty, 
me • than ever, of college students to maintain equilibrium and 
t„ •<)( i <! to consideration of each problem with reason. It 
should be the function of the collegiate press to act as a brake 
on majority ruthlessnoss, and to seek in every way to give the 
mi >rity a fair chance of expression. 

Sincerely yours, 

Richard Glendon '40 

Massachusetts Collegian 

Dear Sir: 

I hereby render my official resigna- 
tion from the editorial board of the 
Massachusetts Collegian. 

With this missive I wish all doubts 
as to whether I quit or was fired to 
I be dispelled. If that cock-eyed knock- 
kneed, rat-eared, wire-haired, wooly 
ROBERT NOTTENBURC- '42 volt in lamb's clothing, the nmnag- 
HAROLD GOLAN '42 i f editor has any more cracks to 

THEODORE SAULNIER "43 Kl ;. e j n the Collegian, he may do so 

saying anything but that I was 

i red. 

I herewith demand a public apolo 
V from the editor-in-chief and the 
•imaging editor for distributing ma- 
i?ious slander among my friends, acq- 
uaintances, and readers. 
Sincerely yours, 

Hal Forrest 
Fired Columnist 

Mr. Forrest seem* to be labor- 
ing under several delusions. We 
are sure he is exaggerating in 
using the plural of "reason," un- 
less, of course, he is referring 
to his family. 

We futhermore recall Mr. 
Forrest's memory to the issue 
of June 9, 1940, at which time 
he was suspended from the Col- 
legian. Since that suspension has 
never been revoked, we feel it has 
become permanent, and as such 
supercedes a resignation. We 
apologize for Mr. Forrest to Col- 
legian readers, who we are sure 
had felt alarmed that he might 
still be with us. 

Managing Editor's Note: Although 
firing was never within my province, 
I must publicly admit I often did 
BOOM wishful thinking. This latest 
letter from our late "columnist" 
grieves me greatly; 1 cannot condone 
such insults. After all, I'm not knock- 

1 realise very well that a 
ing my typewriter off for . ..-< weeks 
on what isn't good about Glenn Miller, 
there'* something just the [east bit il- 
logical about a rave in this column 
for something waxed by his bund. 
However, I believe I have always 
qualified digs in this column with 
some mechanical device or other. I'm 
not sure whether I say, 'the usual 
work is bad,' and then describe what 
is good as "Unusual," but that's what 
I am saying about Miller's Bluebird 
recording of "Falling Leaves." It's 
good, unusual, and it's by Glenn 

Perhaps you'll understand why, if 
I explain that the song was written 
by Frankie Carle, who also wrote 
"Sunrise Serenade," which was an- 
other Miller "Unusual." Actually, 
Frankie Carle is trying to capitalize 
on the appeal of the chortling and 
phrasing of his big hit of a year ago, 
and is quite successful in doing so. 
"Falling Leaves" is a beautiful mel- 
ody handled at a medium- >'ow dance g j eS) mere n 
tempo, with some of the sweetest ( lion Thet 
chordings imaginable. So. though 
Miller deserves some of the credit 
for this side, I should Bay that the

tune is almost band-proof 

If more evidence is needed, a lis- 
ten to the other side should be con- 
vincing. "Beat Me Dadd- " as ded- 
icated to Texas' "Peck" Kelly, honky 
tonk pianist, is a sad, sad affair. It 
tries to sound rowdy, and s'tcceeds by 
sacrificing all else. I see nothing for 
a band like t!Uler»l to ts proud of 
in being able to imitate a not so good 
"Dive" bond. 

A far more pleasant and interest- 
ing Victor release is Bunny Beri- 
gan'l recording of the ancient but 
memorable "Ain't She Sweet." Beri- 

Last week's ColUffian featun 
article headed "College Poll Indi 
Coeds Want Boyfriends to st;

ically attributing the 2d' ; w 
women students here who op 
conscription to "maternal bu 
and, of all things, lack of date, 
the spring. (We wonder why spring 
particularly — but then.) 

In the first place the sarcasm i.. 
unfair, and we think the gentlemen 
eligible for the draft are rather Hat 
tering themselves. Secondly 26'; can 
never be labelled a majority un&i 
any mathematical system. Most in; 
portant of all, we wish people who 
insist on this polling business would 
stop making up reasons for the r< 
suits of the vote. No one less than 
a mind-reader has any right to de- 
•ide arbitrarily why the feminine 
mind acts as it does — she doesn't 
know herself half the time. 

Certainly it is not a bit flattering 
to us to be interpreted as female si- 
sies, merely for opposing conscrirj 
e might be a million rea- 
sons why 2fi r // of the coeds opposed 
t'.o draft — and those reasons are a 
• rsonal matter anyway. There will 
a' ways be straw votes we suppose-, 
but may the coeds suggest the results 
be viewed without leaping to falsf 
conclusions? And also that overem- 
phasizing a 2C; minority and ignor- 
ing a 74' i majority is not even good 

gan's horn is still something to lister 
to, if for nothing less than illustrat 
ing sheer imagination and vitality 
such as so many technically perfect 
automatons lack. His horn playire 
is so much alive that if you hap]'"" 
to crack the record I'm sure it wou!i 
drip blood.

Superintendent W. H. Armstrong 
of the Grounds Department announc-

Sometime in the near future the

Soon many of us may be called to give, and we can not help W 
feel how little our sacrifice compares with those to whom the Me-

We have seen an age in which Americans have asked t 
their country. We have seen demands for "Thirty dollars ever] 
Thursday," 200 dollars a month for Townsendites, and ev.n sub- 
sidization of college educations. 

Perhaps we are to see another age, in which the demand may 
be counterbalanced by the giving. 

We have often pondered on the meaning of words inscribe 
on our War Memorial, "We will keep faith with you who ll

Editor's Note: Minority expression is one issue. Labeling 
conscription "this act which gives Fascism its first major victory 
in America," is another. Furthermore, we considered not the 
mi irity opposing conscription, but the Youth Committee on 
War, an organization which labels its obvious propaganda as 
the expression of American youth.

In the first place, the smallest percentage in years of tt*

this circumstance, there is undoubtedly a close correlation, 
thermore, the availability of Thatcher Hall as an upperclssi

Main criticism of the system is that it does not perm t lu-

The faculty advisors of the West- 
ern Massachusetts League of School 
Publications will be entertained at 
Stockbridge House on Friday, Octob- 
er 11, by the State Col leg. • faculty. 

Plans for the possible convening of 
all the members of the league and 
possibly all the Connecticut Valley 

representatives of high school papers 
here on campus later in the year will 
be discussed. 

High School Organization 

The W. M. L. S. P. is an organiza- 
tion composed of the representatives 
of all the high schools in the western 
part of the state. It has for its pur- 
pose the improvement of journalism 
in the various high schools and the 
bringing into closer contact with each 
other the members of the various 
high school papers. Conventions are 
held each year at various points in 
the State. 

Collegian Gives Cup 

One of the outstanding features of 
the program is the critical service. 
All the members are given the bene- 
fit of this at the conventions of the 
league at which prominent speakers 
discuss the various problems con- 
fronting the embryo journalists. 

Dr. Goldberg, faculty advisor to 
the Collegian, Editor Rowland, and 
Editor Dwyer, will be guests at tbe 
meeting Friday night. 

_For the |iast few years the stories 
in the publications have been judged 
by the college news servic-. Judging 
has been on the basis of content, 
makeup, and style of the papers. The 
\CoUegim awards a cup each year to 
the paper having the best editorial in 
the Connecticut Valley. 

The State'College campus has been 
the scene of several of the confer 
ences of the league and many of the 
leaders in student publications have 
been speakers at these conferences. 

The sophomores retaliated for 
their earlier defeat in the rope pull 
by evening the score last Saturday 
in the annual Iiazoo struggle when 
they triumphed over the freshmen 
18-17. The sophomores piled up too 
great an advantage in the boxing and 
wrestling matches for the freshman 
to overcome by their superior skill on 
the raft. 

Although there were "J2.> spp ica 
jtions to the Stockbridge Schoo I 
Agriculture, the lack of facilities 

prompted the acceptance of only 1 17 

ot this number. 

Because of the importance of lab* 
oratory technique, the number of 

students in each course has been lim- 
ited. Through this plan of smaller 
classes, men well versed in their re- 
spective majors will be graduated, 
and in addition 100'; placement may 
be had as each class completes its 
t raining. 

The following is a list of the in- 
coming class: 
Allen, Gilbert G. 
Rartlett, Everett 

Beaton, Melville C. 

In the boxing matches, George Beaudoin, Ken,. E 
Hlessis '44 outswung Nick Caraganis Bennett, Ralph R 
for the decision. •'Stonewall" Jack- Benton, Manuel S 

son's greater experience enabled him 
to beat Rawley Callela. In the wrest 
ling match, Have Marsden pinned 
Joe Masi. Each class won a match by 

The freshmen found little trouble 
in displacing the sophomores from 
the raft. Winners for '44 were 
Charles Parker, Howard Trufant, 
John Hull, and Edwin Fedeli, while 
Vic Leonovitz ami Joe Arnold were 
the only sophomores able to stay out 
>f the pond.

Over 24 years of service to Statesmen 




by Irving Uahinovitz 

The American Youth Congress, its 
merits and shortcomings, is source ol 
vigorous contention, all the way from 

the editorial stair of the "Collegian" 

(town to the Hies Committee. Hut when 
its most rabid opponents will grant 
that the A.Y.C. has served the val- 
ua'i.e i unction of arousing and awak- 
enin , public- opinion to the needs of 
the y lunger generation. As the re- 
sult of the pressure unleashed by- 
liberal forces, the National Youth 
Administration was created, to give 
jobs and new hope to the youth of 
America. The latest flowering of the 
N.Y.A. is a number of young people's 
orchestras, giving embryo musicians 
the experience which will enable them 
to enter professional ranks. 

Lei pold Stokowski, (known to movie 
goer.; as the man with the Svengali 
hands), eighty men and twenty- 
young women, put them all together 
and you have the All American 
Youth Orchestra and musical history- 
skeptics lifted a high-brow eye-brow 
when plans were announced by Maes- 
tro Stokowski for his Youth Orches- 
tra. Hut 500 applicants, from every 
state in the Union, came in answer 
to St kowski's magic name and the 
chance to make their musical fortunes 
Prom the final winnowing there emerg- 
ed eighty young players, twenty of 
them girls. Their ages ranged from 
fourteen to twenty-seven, with the 
average around twenty. About fifteen 
musicians were recruited from the 
Philadelphia Orchestra, not to act as 
chape nies, but as section leaders, 
forming a hard, professional core. 

July dog-days are not ideal for 
a new-fledged orchestral group, but 
in Rplta of the weather, overcoming 
the handicap of inexperience, the All- 
American Youth Orchestra left behind 
enthusiastically applauding audiences 
in Atlantic City, Baltimore and New 
York City, when they embarked for 
a good-will tour of 21 South American 
citie . Whatever fears that the dyn- 
amic leaders newest activity might 
turn out to be merely a stunt, that 
the musically sophisticated South Am- 
erican a would be insulted were soon 
<:et :it rest. The tour, which had the 
co-op ation of the National Youth 
Administration, thus lending it an of-, almost diplomatic flavor, was 
a universal success, playing to full 
hou r ; nearly everywhere. The tour

One hundred and twenty-seven 
Massachusetts State students learn 
the art of parking! Wait B minute 
don't jump to conclusions. We're 
talking about commuting, not spark- 
ing! At seven-thirty in the morning 
the parking lot stands bare and emp- 
ty; at eight o'clock it could compare 
in variety with an auto dealer's sales 
lot. Even a junk dealer might strike 
a bargain. 

Seriously though, we figured there 
must be something to this commuting 
business, if so many students prac- 
tice it. Are they envious of those 
students who have the opportunity 
to live on campus all the time or do 
they actually like to travel back and 
forth from home? 

Since there are more commuters 

n the class of '4.3 than in any other 

'ass in this college, we decided to 

ret a sophomore opinion first. "Don't 

ou waste a lot of time burning up 

he road?" we wanted to know. "It 

mst mean that you lose nearly an 

our a day. How does that affect 

our studies? 

"Well, yes, we do waste some time, 

1 right," admitted one M.'ier, but 

t the same time an assured voice in- 

rrupted: "Yes, but look at all the 

ime we don't waste!" 

Maybe there's something to that 
we admitted and so sought the ad- 
vice of a former commuter from the 
•nior class. "I wouldn't like to live 

here all four years," was her unex- 
pected answer, "but I think that all 

commuters should make an effort to 

live here part of the time, at least 
one semester. Of course, you get 
closer associations when you live on 
campus," said this fair senior, "bui 

you get more work done if you com 

It sounded like a paradox so we 
'et her explain — 

"You see, she continued, "we get 
here at eight o'clock in the morning 
and can't leave till five in the after- i 
noon, so there's always some time 
between classes when there's nothing! 
to do but study." 

(Can't say but what we've seen 
exceptions to that assumption!) 

"If you live here it's much harder 
to make yourself study," she explain- ! 
ed, "because there's always something: 
else to do. Then, too, it's nice to be 
home," she added. 

This reminded us of a previously j 
heard comment from an auburn-hair- 
ed miss: "We have more freedom at 
home. I can come in when I want to 
at night!" 

We conclude that there are advan- 
tages to both sides of the issue: to 
commute or not to commute. But. 
personally, we can think of pleas- 
anter ways to use up gasoline t' hi 
combining an early morning d'ive 
with a mental review of an English 
Literature assignment ! 



was no picnic for the players as 
most of their spare time was spent 
rehearsing. But Stokowski got the 
worst of it when the South American 
souvenir hunters mobbed him, rip- 
ping off coat buttons, snatching hand- 
kerchiefs and gloves. 

That the orchestra was of vir- 
tuoso caliber was demonstrated 
at Manhattan's musical Mecca, 
Carnegie Hall. Their freshness 
and vitality brought audiences to 
their feet, demanding encores. It 
was obvious that Stokowski had 
molded his pliable material into 
an instrument of rare beauty, that 
he had given the group a remark-

We mentioned in a previous column 
the developing maturity of American 
music. Surely the All American Youth 

Orchestra is an important landmark 
in our artistic development. It is 
important to note that in nearly every 
works by native American composers 
It is only natural that new, composers 
will merit the attention of this group 
of gifted youngsters. 

Before we go to press, we must 
give a credit line to Miss L. H. . a 
"Collegian" subscriber from way down 
in Philadelphia, on whose suggestion 
the item on the Youth Orchestra was 
written. While it is honor and a dis- 
tinction to receive attention from a-- 
far away as Philadelphia, we would 
alsoappreciate comment closer to 
home. We frankly admit our pre- 
judice in favor of certain schools of 
musical thought and cordially invite 
contrary opinions. 

That awkward blotch of white 
space at the head of this column 
will not be filled by a certain 
smiling countenance until the re- 
cord companies snap out of their 
lethargy and mail us some of 
their long-promised products.

People come to college for a vacation of four yeara — and find. 
that they must take a castor-oil dose of lectures daily before they 
can "paint the campus red." Sam Johnson, years and years ago, 
threw light on the matter: 

"People now-a-days (1766) have a strange opinion that i very 
thing should be taught by lectures. Now," he said to Boawell, "I 
cannot see that lectures can do so much good as reading the boola 
from which the lectures are taken. I know nothing that can be 
best taught by lectures, except in the few cases where experiment! 
are to be shown." 

Lectures still clutter college continuously, but the students at 
State and at our colleague-colleges over the country have solved 
the problem. And on goes the out-moded tradition of lecture! 
which are cut, slept through, ignored, vilified, and occasionally 
heard through the undergraduate fog. 

Speaking of fog, we find Sandburg mangled in the Fordham 
Ra m : 

The fog 

On little cat feet 
About the time of semesters 
And sits 

On s'lent haunches 
Hovering over every desk 
And then moves on — 
Only sometimes it doesn't. 
It doesn't appeal t ) anybody when witch-hunts are made for 
"subversiveness in education. 

Recent cases: 1) New York state's pending legislative inves- 
tigation of its public-school system, 2) the promised Dies investi- 
gation of textbooks and their authors, 3) an attack at Minnesota 
on a philosophy instructor by a small but vocal group, and 1) 
the Bertram! Russell debacle. 

Any day we now expect the official red M. S. C. blotter! 
labelled as Communistic and un-American. And our German in- 
structor. Prof. Julian, may be re-transferred to the Chemistry 
Department. And every class may be converted into a glee club, 
singing "God Bless America" before every lecture: which is 
where we came in.

For the benefit of those on campus 
not familiar with the Carnegie col- 
lection of classical and semi-classical 
recordings, the music department an- 
nounces that the listening room in 
Memorial Hall is open every week- 
day from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. 

Here one can while away those free 
hours between classes listening to 
the exciting music of Hach, the sweet 
melody of Uimsky-Korsakov, the slow, 
sad music of Tschaikowsky, or the 
amazing versatility and comedy of 
Gilbert and Sullivan. 

The Carnegie collection from pre- 
Bach through Roy Harris, is within 
easy reach of the entire student 
body. However, according to Mr. My- 
ers, director of the room, few seem 
to be taking advantage of this op- 
portunity to hear the best in music. 

An experienced, courteous attend- 
ant is on duty while the room is op- 
en. He will gladly play any music 
that you want. Scores and analyses 
of the records being played will be 
furnished upon request. The latter 
offer an excellent way of preparing 
for the many concerts offered both 
on the campus and in the surround- 
ing valley.

Massachusetts State College 

Basil Wood, Librarian, Calls Youth Hard 

Headed Realists Who Are Not Afraid to Act 

'Collegian' Reporter Interviews Mr. Wood on World Situation 

— He Advocates Military Training and Discusses 

Pacifism and Morality 

"There is a classic of faulty rea- 
soning which goes, 'The worst horse 
in the world is better than nothing. 
Nothing is better than the best horse 
in the world. Therefore the worst 
horse in the world is better than the 
best horse'.", declared Mr. Basil B. 
Wood, college librarian and student 
of philosophy, when interviewed this 

Said Mr. Wood, in his characteris- 
tic speed of expression, "As silly as 
that sounds, salesmen, politicians, and 
diplomats ate always selling similar 
arguments to people — to the little 
people — to you and me, if they can 
do it. On this very campus," he di- 
vulged, "there is a professor — a bril- 
liant man with two Ph.D.'s, one from 
this country and one from abroad, 
who insists that the Bible sanctions 
lying and murder because it says 
that Christians, in the final analysis, 
are not liable to the laws of men. 

"An argument that many of our 
American youths have swallowed, and 
digested, during the past decade is 
that of pacificism. Peace is fine, I 
know, but in this world of today we 
need to protect our rights. As an 
individual one may turn the other 
cheek if he likes, but as a member of

ciples of that group. Nevertheless, 
if the necessity arises, I am sure 
that the men of the younger genera-

provement of the mental and physi- 
cal health of our nation; that we 
should have available an army of 
millions on millions and be able to 
exert a tremendous force for right

be a mite the bloodthirstier or the 
more belligerent for it. 

"Certainly I do not advocate war, 
but since there is the possibility of 
war, we must realize that the longer 
the delay in preparation, the greater 
number of lives will be lost. I'm not 
anxious to see people killed. Few of 
us are. But since this war has hap 
pened, we must concentrate in see- 
ing fewer lives lost — in the end. 

"As for this theory about the nec- 
essity of periodic wars to provide an 
outlet for combative energy it is 
about as substantial as a shadow. 
Wars are fought for question of right 
and wrong. The combative energy or 
instinct apparent in sports- in razoo

to make men slaughter one another. 
They must have a much more com

Isles is concerned, last week's hap- 
penings have proved that operations 
are very close to a stalemate. Lon-

Berlin that the Axis is going to at-

all, Benito Mussolini, for eighteen 
years dictator of Italy, and Adolf 
Hitler, head of the German Reichstag,

ly to effect a coup of some sort. Any 
Hitler-Mussolini meeting in the past 
has always resulted in definite action.

Strength of Whole Club May be 

Enough to Offset N. U. 

Star Runner 

Coach Llewellyn I.. Derby's varsity 
cross country team gets the range on 
the Northeastern University sector 
Saturday afternoon when ten States 
men hit Boston's Franklin Park 
cross country course to face the 
strong Huskies in the season's lead- 
off meet. 

A wall-balanced team is state's 

forts this season. Capt, Hill Kimball 
and c\-capt. Chat Putney are the 
standout runners on the club but it 
is quite possible that they may trail 
Northeastcrn's newest star, the soph- 
omore Carpenter who last week, 
against UConn, showed his heels to 

the entire field. 

However, cross country meets are 
won on team strength, not individual 
stars. Therefore, this thesis is car- 
ried out when we recall that UConn 
though losing first place, beat the 
invaders from Pack Pay 88 to 'VI 
last week. 

This docs not mean that North- 
eastern can be sold short. P does 
mean that the Nutmeg tram was 
Connecticut Valley champion and 
runner up for the New England title 
last year managed to heat them by 
only nine points. Put team strength 
was the determining factor in their 

State, in Puss McDonald, has a 
man doing much to holster team 
strength. Working hard, this mite 
has edged past Brad Greene in the 

time trials to grab the third slot in 
Saturday's team. The only sopho- 
more on the squad, and fired with a 
fighting love for the •1 1 -; mile grind, 
McDonald has eased Coach Derby's 
headaches immeasurably. 

Besides these men, Mo Peland,

Two More Cubs 

Two veteran track men are pac

week's meet with Amherst, Coach 
Derby revealed yesterday afternoon. 

Seasoned "track-lore" had much 
to do with the way that Earle New- 
ton won Monday's time trial from 
Lloyd Pitzpatrick by a thin cat's 
whisker. For, biding his time cagily, 
Newton trailed Fitzpatrick all down 
through the final home stretch of the 
yearling course. Kasing out to one 
side with the finish line M) yards 
away, he lifted the beat and whipped 
down tin' last leg to push across the 
line a hare 2 seconds ahead of his

three other cubs that were within

Dotnina is Star of Horsemen ;P 
Halfback State Maj Rely 

on Passes 

A heavily favored aggregation of 
Horsemen from Norwich University 
playa host to the Maroon and White 
next Saturday. However, we of Mas 

Sachusettl Know that one squad will 

march on the gridiron, a determined 

group. With the ill fated Connecti- 
cut game on their minds, the ferocity 
of Ralph Simmons and Company 
should cause the Statesmen to rise 
to the heights of victory. 

The contest, nevertheless, should 
be a corker because Norwich has a 
powerful line and a brilliant triple 
threat in the person of "Dynamo" 
Dotnina, who threw a scare into Bos 
ton University two weeks back by 
scoring the first touchdown on a mag 
nificcnt 8. r i yard run on a pass inter- 
ception. The slightly bruised Cadets 
have had a two weeks rest after that 
game with the Terriers. 

Coach Kb Caraway has a few 
tricks up his sleeves which might 
guide his aroused crew to a win 
During the past week, Caraway has 
been drilling the forward wall in- 
cessantly to get closer to the ball on 
the scrimmage line. The veteran 
Captain Simmons is the perfect ex- 
ample of Coach Caraway's idea. An 
other surprise may be in the offering 
when the ball is mapped to Ruddy 
I' vans, who has incorporated a few 
shovel pass tricks into his reper- 
toir of running plays. Renny Freitas, 
with his passing barrage, should 
make some headway against the Ca- 
dets who showed a woeful weakness 
on passes in the P. U. game. Matty 
Pyan, Oil Santin, Johny Seery, Stun 
Salwak, and Stan Hood have also 
been polishing their offensive attack 
with a victory bound vengeance. 

Freshman Football Team Candidates Give 

Coach Frigard Alternate Hopes and Fears 

Jill Tl.Ii NoKK 

With a nucleus of only twenty four 
experienced men, Coach Pill Fri 
gard's hope for a successful fresh 
man eleven still seemed hazy as he 
bewail formation of a first string last 
week. Experienced men along with 
:i few exceptionally talented green 
gridsters will constitute the fresh- 
man varsity squad. The inexfiei i<nced 
men will be divided up into elevens 
which will be taught fundamentals by 
the system of round robin games. 

There are six men out for the two 
Hank positions. A merry battle is 
being waged among shifty Art Mar- 
coullier from Westficld High, com 
pact Charlie Dunham of Cashing 
Academy, South Hadley High's bur- 
ly Steve Hollis, Dave (not O'Brien) 
Anderson of Worcester North High, 
chunky Pob Wroe of Foxboro High, 
ami handsome Cordy Trobridge of 
Northampton High. 

At the tackle positions Coach Fri- 
gard'S troubles begin. Mob Norton, 
a human dynamo from Norwood 
High is only experienced tackle on 
the team. Perhaps the inexperienced 
Gargantuan Fred Parker, weighing 
800 and scaling the heights at six 
foot three will play, or maybe t wo or 
three tackles will be drafted from 
the surplus of ends and guards. 

Prospects for a Strong duo at the 
guard posts are very assuring with 
the fact that six very talented men 

are lighting for the post. Aarne Kar- 

vonen, another Ralph Simmons, is nlBridgeton Academy 
particularly encouraging picture. He Wilmington High, 

another encouraging sight to Coach 
Frigard. Solid as a brick wall and 
fast as a piston, this I HO DOUndei 
should account for one of the guard 
positions. Four Other gridsters are 
offering stiff competition for the 
guard positions. These burlies of the 
Maroon and White are Dave Wright 

of Northampton Hi^h, .)<,<• Driacoil 
and Chat Mann of Thayer Academy, 
and Tom Tolman of Wilbraham High. 

Boston Latin school sends carrot- 
topped Dave Kaplan for the center 
post. Fighting a bitter duel with 
Kaplan is a local boy, George Pushee 
of Amherst High. 

If you want to bring tears to 
Coach Frigard's eyes, ask him about 
his backfield. It isn't that the- eight 
backs <m the team are not sufficient, 
but that two potential M. S. C. greats 
will not be out for freshman football. 

Pob Englehard, 105 giant from Ha- 
waii, is just getting over a seven- 
knee injury and will not be able to 
play this year. To add misery to 
sheer grief, Pob Pyan, a leu second 
man in the century, will be unable 
to play until he can get rid nf a 
pesky appendix. 

There is still a bright ray of hope 
in the eyas of Coach Frigard. A host 
of nine backs led by Fllson Race, 
One of the finest straight away run- 
nets in the state, all show so much 
ability that at least one niacin ficent 

backfield may be formed. Besides the 

180 pound Race from Monson Acad- 
emy, there are Emy Porowski of

at 7:30 p.m., Friday, October 11, in 
Room 209 of French Hall. 

The purpose of the meeting is to

on The Norris Reservoir of the Ten-

the United States is located below 
Norris Dam and because Massachu- 
setts has a similar opportunity to 
develop a fish hatchery in connection 
with the Quabbin Dam on the Swift 
River Water Project.

Hats off to Dean Burns I As much 
a part of colege life in Amherst as 
football and fraternities, State and 
Amherst freshmen found him possess- 
ed of a cool head and clear thinking 
Monday evening as words from him 
dispelled what promised to be a riot 
of fourth -alarm proportions. 

Start of hell week at Amherst Col- 
lege found a group of freshmen head- 
ed for the State campus on a hat 
forage. An hour later found Amherst 
boys enjoying (?) a brisk dip in the 
College Pond, and an army of State 
freshmen headed for the ivied wall- 
in Amherst center. 

Hattle Planned 
The Amherst invaders had planned 
to split forces, draw the freshmen 

from the dormitory, raid it, and 
emerge with hats. However, of course 
the dormitories were tipped off by 
phono from fraternity row, and had 
already planned a water carnival as 
reception entertainment. 

Following the rout, retaliation was 
started by State freshmen, and soon 
battle lines were drawn up on the 

Amherst common. Kd Sliz, proctor 
in Thatcher Hall, showed courage and 
Coolnesi In attempting to stem the 
tide, but to no avail. Police had 
arrived, and a few fistfights broke

NO The caption with which we head this editorial was one 

HONOR usvd in 1939 in the Collegian to head a series of com- 
ments on the honor system. Now nearly two years later, 
we find ourselves without the system, but with growing indica- 
tions of honor. 

Many students have commented on the commendable attitude 
of the majority of the faculty in continuing to conduct examina- 
tions without proctoring. While the faculty is allowed complete 
freedom in the matter, it is a satisfying feeling to know that the 
majority of the faculty and students hold sufficient mutual trust 
and confidence to quietly and unobstrusively continue the spirit 
of the system, without the confusion and pettiness of its letter. 

At the time of using the caption "No Honor," perhaps we 
had the system, but indications are now that we may use "No 
syst' m, just honor." 


The AY/r York Time* once accorded Massachusetts 

State the dubious honor of being the "country-club 

college of New England." Now we aren't sure they 

didn't have their local colleges mixed up, but the Student Life 

Committee on campus seems to be in accord with the sentiment. 

Indications are that fraternity vie parties will be limited to 
one per month, and other restrictions may arise. The line of rea- 
soning is that there is one informal per month, nearly one formal, 
and a number of vies. Therefore it has seemed advisable to elim- 
inate many of the vie parties. 

This line of reasoning must be based on one fact, that danc- 
ing, as a form of entertainment, is not desirable. We arrive at 
this conclusion by the obvious fact elimination of vie parties will 
certainly not lead to less Saturday night activity. It simply means 
that the Amherst Theatre, and Lovers' Lane, weather permitting, 
will benefit. 

Limitation of one form of social activity, we're afraid, won't 
lead to any great abundance of Saturday night studying. As a 
matter of fact, we can't remember ever having seen any one 
studying Saturday night. 

If the purpose of curtailing social life is to induce more ap- 
plication to books, we think somebody is barking up the wrong 
tree when vie parties are chosen for the axe.

I'd low Americans, 

The Selective Service Act is the 
.nost un-American piece of legisla- 
tion that has passed through Con- 
gress since George Washington wore 
;'iort pants. Personal liberties are 
Sampled upon. Business is inter- 
rupted. Those sacred American in- 
stitutions, the places of higher learn- 
ing;, are reduced to the status of hu- 
man supply depots for the infantry 
by this act. Conditions have become 
so acute that co-eds no longer ask a 
a man which is his fraternity or 
whether he is a freshman or senior. 
Their principal concern now is which 
<lass he fits into in the conscription 
set-up. A Class I man is sure to find 
himself dateless if he tries to date 
a co-ed who reads anything but Mod- 
em nisi lie and True Confession*, or 
if he tries to date a co-ed. 

Fickle, like all women, co-eds now 
prefer to date a class IV male, aban- 
doning the Class I males. This, fel- 
low Class I males, is an enchroach- 
ment on our rights. Why do we per- 
mit it? Why do we stand idle as the 
women date pink cheeked, milk fed 
'.joys under twenty-one? Will you ro- 
bust, young men who are subject to 
the draft permit this infringement 
on your life, liberty, and the pursuit? 
You can change it. 

In an other land across the 
stern Atlantic live a people who 
were not deprived of their liberty 
and rights this October sixteenth 
as you were. They did not lose 
the right to live happily and 
work side by side peacefully this 
October Sixteenth. Nor was Free- 
dom of Speech, the dearest right 
in the bill of American rights 
for Americans, lost to them this 
October sixteenth. These people, 
kindred spirits of ours deep in 
their hearts, sit by their fire- 
sides in happy groups and listen 
to their own "Amos and Andy" 
and "Charlie McCarthy" in the 
evening. Sometimes their Edgar 
Bergen speaks to them. He is 
Charlies voice. Yussef Gurgles is 
a personal friend of mine. I know 
him so well I call him "Dirty 



The desk of the college president, 
whether that president has to do with 
a small college or a large " Ul '< a 
privately-endowed or a state college, 
seems to loom very large in the minds 
of a growing host of people in this 
country who believe that the country 
can be saved by organizing all of us 
to do certain things at certain times 
and in certain ways. Perhaps the 
college and the school executive may 
be considered to be particularly sus- 
ceptible to organized effort, or per- 
haps it is because lie is deeply con- 
cerned with our young people and 
where they are going. 

"Save America" 

If one looks over the steady stream 
of personal letters, form letters, 
printed literature that comes in 
from these organizations who would 
do this or that to save America, it 
seems as if it were almost funny, if 
it were not tragic, that there are so 
many people who believe that Am- 
erica is to be saved from herself or 
some other nation by adopting a slo- 
gan and having everybody repeat that 
slogan when they get up in the morn- 
ing and when they go to bed at night. 
There is no serious loss in this whole 
activity without some gain. Some- 
body is profiting directly by all of it 
and because of my years of contact 
with the paper industry, I am ready 
to say that it is all to the good for 
the paper industry and the printer 
and Uncle Sam's post office depart- 

and the getting out of a vast 
of literature. Of course, t! 
Cross could use the money t 
advantage or it could be seed f 
sending more ambulances and eai 
teens to England. We could b 
much needed home economics build 
ing, or a much needed Physics bui 
ing, or an auditorium, I an , 
sure, for what is being spent u 
whole in this country in any ,;,. 
month in this type of activity 
Questioning Times 

It may even be dangerous foi ne 
to question this sort of activity. Son> 
one might say if I question it that I 
am unpatriotic or that I am pro tkii 
or anti that. Perhaps it is net. . 
in these times that we should W 
fervidly pro this or anti that and I 
am afraid sometimes I have been to 
pro-ally all the way long, and yet I 
am quite sure that I would go sti; 
further than I have gone in urgin 
support of England. 

And what of all these letters and 
this great mass of literature ?Why 
question it? Why not feel that t'> 
more organizations, the better'.' Th 
answer it seems to me is that though 
we may possibly find it exciting N 
repeat slogans day and night, there 
is danger that we shall repeat ilo>

DRAFTY That pun concerning yesterday isn't ours, we heard 
DAY it over the radio. But it certainly was! A humorous 

note was struck in a daily paper also, although quite 
unintentional. A headline stated President Roosevelt's message 
that the response was due to patriotism. Underneath were listed 
the penal sentence and fines for evasion. 

"Dirty Face" is the people's voice 
of truth. He is not permitted to allow 
the truth to alarm. He tells the people 
how strong their nation is, not how 
weak it is. He says the government 
is doing things right, not that the 
government has been doing things 
wrong for years and years. How can 
you my fine intelligent friends have 
faith in a government which is said 
to be or is doing wrong from year 
to year. This nation across the sea 
has done no wrong. Their leaders do 
not impeach themselves, so their is 
no wrong in that government.

This week's record output is noth- 
ing that I can get either you or my- 
self hot under the collar about. I can 
talk about three fairly good record- 
ings that are passing, but definitely 
not on the Dean's List. On the other 
hand, there are no out and out flunks. 
I can't even get a normal curve out

accordingly. They just don't stand Up

of the eighth annual Conference on 
Outdoor Recreation. Dr. William G. 
Vinal, professor of nature education, 
heads the planning committee of the 
session which will be held here at 
Massachusetts State College next 
March 13-16. 

The parley includes a full program 
of discussions and lectures on vari- 
ous sports. Camping, golf, water 
sports, nature recreation and gar- 
dening, mountaineering and trails, 
winter sports, photography, archery, 
forestry, livestock, and hunting and 
fishing will be included in the diversi- 
fied program of the recreational con- 
ference. The convention is always

A town meeting, a successful fea- 
ture of the 1939 conference, has 
again been planned for the general 
session on Friday night, March 14. 
Exhibits, contests, and demonstra-

others that are interested. The 5- 
college Outing Club made up of stu- 
dents from Mount Holyoke, Smith, 
Amherst, Springfield, and State Col- 
lege is planning its annual barn 
dance as a part of the conference 

A faculty committee meeting was 
held last Monday to continue the 
plans for the 1941 conference. At 
present the program as to speakers 
and exhibitions is incomplete but 
preliminary plans for the conference 
have been laid. 

A series of four medical lectures 
by very prominent physicians will 
l>e held Sunday afternoons at 5 p.m. 
at the Jones Memorial Library and 
lie free to the public. 

The first lecture will be this Sun

This year freshman course in 
Mathematics has been divided into 
two parts: 1) devoted to those who 
desire to continue in mathematics or 
sciences, and (2) those who are re- 
quired to take the subject and do not 
expect to take any advance courses 
in the following years. The first sec- 
tion, being the more difficult, con- 
tains less algebra and more analytics 
geometry; whereas, the second one 
contains practically no analytics at 
all. According to Prof. Harold Bou- 
telle, there is a ratio of two to one 
—with the majority of the students 
taking the simpler course. There are

bars political participation of any 

memb e r of an organisation receiving 

federal support. 

Employees of the college, even thoac 

whose salaries are paid entirely from 
state funds, are covered by the Hatch 
act which extends the provisions of 
the original Hatch Act to any "officer

agency whose principal employment

Since Massachusetts State College, 
in common with land-grant colleges 
in other states, recehes a part of itH 
income from Morrill and other Federal 
grants, its every employee is thus 
covered and barred from taking part 
in political activities or occupying 
elective office as a representative of 
a political party. 

This has been interpreted here to 
mean that the only local office which 
a State College employee may hold 
is the non-partisan office of town 
meeting representative. This inter- 
pretation will bar members of the 
college staff from holding positions 
on the town school committee or plan- 
ning board, positions which in the 
past have been variously held by 
educators who have contributed their 
specialized knowledge to these activi- 

President Hugh P. Baker has 
notified members of the staff of this 
interpretation through the Executive 
Bulletin and will discuss the various 
provisions affecting staff members at 
a meeting of heads of departments 
this week.

by Irving Rabinovitz 

One can sooner imagine a smile 
gracing the face of a codfish than 
picture an audience, attending a per- 
formance of the Boston Symphony 
Orchestra, at Symphony Hall in 
Boston, breaking into tears. Yet, at 
the first American performance of 
Sergei Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 
2, in G Minor, the magcal combination 
of Jascha Heifetz as soloist, Serge 
Koussevitzky as conductor, and the 
tender reflectiveness of the Andante 
Assai of the second movement wove 
the spell that captured the hearts of 
the proverbially phlegmatic Boston- 
ians. The listener, on hearing the 
work as recorded by Victor, with the 
same artists, can readily feel the surge 
of emotion that overwhelmed that aud- 
ience. The music is written by a com- 
poser in the Autumn of his life, ex- 
pressing in sweeping phrases a sense 
of fullness, of completion, touched by 
a note of sadness. 

This concerto deserves to rank 

among the great violin concertos 

of Brahms, Beethoven, and Tchai- 
kovsky, enhancing an already 

firmly established international 

reputation. While Prokofiev's re- 
putation is world-wide, his works 

are most popular in his native 

Kussia, where his music is the 

greatest single influence in the 

moulding of Soviet music.

announced today by the committee in

While pre Revolutionary composers 
had to be "naturalized" as Soviet 
muscians, Prokofiev's music fitted 
without strain into the scheme of 
"socialist dealism", as Soviet critics 
describe the essence of Soviet music. 
The chronological list of Prokofiev's 
works shows an extraordinary con- 
stancy of purpose. There are no sud- 
den changes of style, no incursions 
into self-denying classicism or sweep- 
ing modernism. There are no recan- 
tations, no "returns to Bach." Instead, 
there is a creative self-assertion. 

In the early year of the Soviet 
Republic, musicians were apt to spec- 
ulate on whether this or that composer 
was "constant" with the spirit of the 
new nation born of revolution. Of 
contemporary composers, there were 
few who were as close in spirit to the 
new music of the masses as Prokofiev's 
cheerfully lyrical muse. 

Yet Prokofiev was a West- 
erner. He went eastward around 
the world in 1918, and he did 
not revisit Russia until 1927. As 
a concert pianist and conductor of 
his own works, he was a familiar 
figure in Paris. Berlin. London. 
and New York. In 1934, Prokofiev 
settled permanently in Moscow, 
without abandoning his annual 
visits to Europe and America. 
Throughout this period, between his 
first tour in Russia and his final set- 
tlement in Moscow as a Soviet com- 
poser, Prokofiev's music underwent 
subtle changes in a direction away 

allowed to enter. 

A committee of students and fac- 
ulty are hard at work planning an 
exhibit calculated to surpass any of 
those in any previous year. 

A schedule of the displays open to 
competitors is as follows: 

Class 1. Displays. This is open to 
all students in the Division of Hor- 
ticulture. Displays should be arrang- 
ed for effect to cover 100 square feet. 
Accessories of any sort except cut 
flowers may be used. 

Section A. Formal Displays. 

Section B. Informal Displays. 

Section C. Miniature Displays. 

Section D. Window Displays of 


Section E. Oriental Style Displays. 

T. R. Leonard is chairman of the 
committee on these displays. Rules 
may be obtained from him. 

Class 2. Open to competitors from 
the Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
ture. Basket arrangements or small 

Class 3. Competition for students 
in floriculture. 

Section A. Bowl arrangement of 
small flowered crysanthemums. 

Section B. Vase arrangements of 
small flowered types. 

Class 4. Miscellaneous competition. 
Open to all. 

Section A. Basket arrangement of 
native or other hardy types. 

Section B. Winter bouquet. Ar- 
ranged any style with fruiting 
branches excluded. 

Section C. Original arrangement of 
fruiting branches. 

Section D. Arrangement of fruits 
and vegetables in chopping bowl. 

Section E. Japanese Style arrange- 

Section F. Terrarium. 

Section G. Dish garden. 

All entries in class 1 must be in 
not later than October 18, and the 
other entries must be in not later 
than October 28. 

The German "Drangnach Osten 
(push to the East) which is pushing 
the field of battle to new outposts, 
and which is designed to strip britain 
of her choicest colonial possessions, 
and thus bring about a conquest of 
the British without actual invasion 
of the British Isles, was started last 
week with Germany's bold entrance 
into Rumania. Hitler, with the pos- 
sible aid of Mussolini, is, by all out- 
ward signs, about to attempt to put 
into effect the ancient Hohenzollern 
dream of using the Balkans as a 
route to Eastern power. This drive 
to the East now seems the only logi- 
cal thing for Hitler to attempt. The 
British refuse to bow their necks and 
persist in gritting their teeth and 
holding on, so, the attempt now will 
be to conquer the Balkans, and thus 
strangle Britain by taking away her 
power in the Eastern Mediterranean, 
in Africa and in the near East. 

In looking at the map of operations 
which we have before us, we see Ger- 
many driving down from above, and 
Italy from below, both intent on 
crushing British power in the Near 
East. Italy, after a march across the 
deserts of Libya, is now at the coastal 
town of Sidi Barrani, Egypt. Her 
next move will be to continue her 
march directly eastward across Egypt 
and Palestine, in an attempt to meet 
German columns who in turn will 
have come across the Balkans south- 
eastward through Syria, Iraq and 
Iran. Thus, the Axis hopes to cut off 
Britain from the great wealth which 
she is drawing from the Eastern 
world through the Suez Canal and 
the Mediterranean.

It is not easy to put Japan out 
of mind as a very definite threat 
to our future security. For dec- 
ades the United States, basing its 
policy on the Nine power treaty 
of 1922 with its guarantee of aid 
to China, has been attempting to

the 1931 Japanese invasion of 
Manchuria and to this day British 
diplomats are probably regrett-

to join us in a firm stand against 

Our continued protests against 
such happenings as the Japanese 
sinking of the American gun-boa: 
Panay, bombing of Chinese reaida> 
tial cities, and the recent alliance of 
Japan with the axis to bring alum! 
a "new world order," has not had 
much effect. Britain's answer to Jap- 
an's signing of the axis pact was the 
opening of her Burma Road, that 
narrow highway which stretches from 
British Burma to Humming in Chin- 
ese Yunnan, and which is proving 
a life line for war supplies to hard- 
pressed China. The British had clos- 
ed the road three months ago, at 
Japan's request, but now, with net 
an open avowal of Japanese anti- 
British policy, the road is open, and 
long live China. Quite cosy, theft

Distilling the three chief ingredients 
of his musical essence, dynamism, 
lyricism, and sarcasm, Prokofiev has 
formed a style with less saivasm 
than in early works, while enhancing 

aware of that biting wind that caused 
wet, soggy, clammy figures to cower

in an effort to drive out the chills. 
As we had labored up the mountain 
we had pitted those uninformed souls 
who had burdened themselves with 
extra sweaters and, of all things, 

etUMhHI of the presidential campaign. 

o'clock how we envied those um- 
brellas that had seemed so out of 
place at two o'clock! Half way up the 
mountain we'd have gladly swapped 
our coats for an ice cold "coke" and 
called it a bargan; half way down the 
other side of the mountain we were 
craving hot coffee and another coat! 

To add to our adventures and to 
afford variety, someone politely stirred 
up a nest of yellow jackets, and sever- 
al members of that bold species en- 
joyed a hasty rest on our socks. We 
didn't enjoy the visit, however,— we 
got stung! 

The most popular man of the after- 
noon was —no, not that freshman 
Romeo — but Tim, the coffee man, as 
he dipped out that steaming liquid 
that warmed us up for a few minutes 
at least. All sorts of headgears were 
popular, too. From now on we see 
no reason for sarcastic remarks about 
women's hat styles — we noticed a 
choice assortment of masculine head 
covers, varying from the pixy-like 
hood that one fellow borrowed from 
his girl friend to a cardboard box 
and an inverted knapsack. 

All in all, we pronounce Mountain 
Day, this year, a test of anyone's 
amiability. It was an ordeal to keep 
one's good humor from reaching the 
same stage of dampness as one's self.

Enough said, we're on the way. 

Wendell Willkie is still talking. 
Last week he talked in New York 
and at various points in New Eng- 
land. Judging by his speeches, Mr. 
Willkie believes in the good old fash- 
ioned tactics of mud-slinging. Mr. 
Willkie continues to charge that the 
New Deal foreign and domestic pol- 
icy has been instrumental in bring- 
ing about the European War. Con- 
tinous reference to the "secret and 
hidden" moves of our president, and 
jibes at his personal character rather 
anger us at times. As one fellow 
said, "It's no wonder they throw 
rotten eggs at him." 

It was finally decided by the Na- 
tional Labor Relations Board last 
week, that even if corporations do 
not comply with its rulings, defense 
contracts may still be awarded to 
them. A ruling to the contrary would 
have canceled out such great manu- 
facturing factors as Bethlehem Steel, 
which holds about one billion dollars 
worth of defense contracts and with 
which the C.I.O. has been fighting, 
General Motors, the Toddy ship 
yards, and other great corporations, 
many of whose past appeals to the 
courts regarding NLRB commands 
are still pending. True, preparedness 
would have been greatly hindered if 
high labor conditions were insisted 
upon, but still, one hates to see Labor 
put on a spot in this way. Yet, in 
view of all the other unorthodox hap- 
penings of the present era, we are 
not too much surprised at this pres- 
ent concession of Labor to Industry, 
and wait with drawn breath hoping 
that the rights of Labor to strike and 
bargain will not, of necessity, be 
thrown out the window along with 
other American rights and liberties. 
We have forebodings, however, strong 

Patriotism is becoming strong- 
er and stronger. Last week, to do 
his hit for his country, Captain 
Elliot Roosevelt, U.S. Air Corps 
Specialists reservist, thirty year 
old son of the President, gave up 
a $76,000 a year job and entered 
into active duty at Wright Field 
near Dayton, Ohio. Said Mr. 
Roosevelt upon being questioned 
as to his officer's position, "I did 
not ask for designation as an 
officer, or make any request for 
any salary." Republicans feel 
that he should be in there as a 
private with "the boys". Fawncy 
rubbing elbows wth a Roosevelt, 
just fawncy that, we can't. 

Last week, nine justices of the 
United States Supreme Court began 
the 1!) 10-11 sessions. Opinions were 
voiced that the Supreme Court will 
soon become a tradition, like the 
King of England. We hope not. The 
World's Fair at New York will close 
its Kates for good in about a week or 
so. Row k>ng before we have another

Dear Junior: 

Mother has been so lonesome with- 
out you, but your letters have been 
so nice. 1 am so sorry to hear that 
you are in bed with a cold. Perhaps 
hot toddy would help. But be sure 
that you don't use anything but lemon 
in it. 

Now, Junior, I understand that you 
have strict rules about talking in the 
library. That man in the library told 
a friend of mine that you should no 
more consider talking in the library 
than you would consider taking a 
bath there. So dear, please think of 
mother and don't try taking a bath in 
the library. 

I don't know if this letter will ever 
reach you. The Dean wrote that you 
got lost on the mountain last Moun- 
tain Day. Mrs. XXXXX's daughter 
got lost, too, she told me. Did you 
happen to see her while you were 

Junior, mother wants to know just 
which Cynthia you have been writing 
home about. As you know, there are 
two Cynthias in the freshman class. 
I am a bit confused which one you 
mean. I know you don't think that any 
of the girls up there are old enough 
to interest you, but I disagree. If a 



girl is old enough to be in college, she 

is old enough to interest a man. So HITTH HIVFPS SPFCIAI 

please don't get serious, dear. You HI it H-IUKLK^ M LI.IAL

This afternoon mother went to * get out of school? An education — the kind you get from boo 

tea, and a Dean Burns spoke. He 
seemed to know you rather well, and 
I wish you'd tiy to get to know him 
better. He might be able to help you 
sometime. From what he said, I 
gathered that he was rather an im- 
portant man. It seems that he is 
dean of Smith, State, Holyoke, Am- 
herst, Wellesley, and several other 
colleges. And to think that he knew 
you so well ! 

Oh, dear, I meant to tell you that 
that Borgia period dance in the ballet 
you saw wasn't what you thought 
it was. You seemed so disturbed about 
it. Well, darling, Borgia was an old 
bishop who always kept his eyes open 
for new things, that's all. 

Well, Junior, remember that your 
overshoes aren't made to keep frogs 
in, and do try to remember your 
umbrella. I'm sending your alowance 
tomorrow. I raised it to a quarter 
now that you need more for your 
social life. 

Be a good boy, 


Physics Department New Annex in 

Sheep Barn Vacated by Grounds Dept. 

Rumor told us that the Physics de- to be!" 

partment on this campus was sport- 
ing a new, enlarged office, so we de- 
cided to satisfy our pent-up curiosity 
with a visit to the scene in an effort 
to separate facts from fiction. We 
found the members of the department 
glad to show us their "marvelous new 
offices in a shed" as they described 
it with an apologetic "That's about 
as far as we've gone so far!" 

With expectant steps we were led 
to the new quarters but confused by 
the suggestion that "it would take 
only two seconds to get an eyeful." 
"This is it," we were informed as we 
viewed a barny structure. 

It is a well known fact that the 
present infirmary is the result of a 
superb remodelling job of one of the 
three barns that used to be grouped 
together on the hill and that the sec- 
ond contains the present physic* lee* 
ture room, laboratory and office. Now 
we are experiencing the transforma- 
tion of the third building. Already the 
old gray barn "ain't what she used 

At present, there are two compar- 
atively large rooms on the south end 
which have been finished off to be 
used as supplement offices to the one 
in the main building. The rest of the 
structure remains in a state of crude 
repair such as the Grounds Depart- 
ment left behind them when they mov- 
ed to new quarters. It is planned 
eventually to remodel this section 
into a classroom or laboratory, but 
we predict drastic changes necessary 
in order to produce a fitting labor- 
atory out of the raftered, oil-soaked, 
unventilated shed. "It shakes," we 
were informed as one of its disad- 
vantages experimental purposes. 
However, we were especially told that 
"Ross annex" as it has already come 
to be known, has running hot water, 
a modern convenience which the old 
huilding never acquired. 

As we left the scene of this trans- 
formation, our one chief improve- 
ment was that of "room for improve- 

can get the other kind from home." . . . Austen Lake, "sports 
writer for the Boston Sunday Advertiser throws a mauve light 
on our colleague-from-the-north-west, Williams College: "Wil- 
liams is a tails-and-white-tie institution which lies deep in the 
Berkshires . . . with a football team that can lick its weight in 
bar-tenders. The mountain college has a reputation of being a 
supercilious, retrousse nosed institution which yodels sweetheart 
calls to sons of patrician daddies with a vault full of those lovely 
government bonds ; a few of the boys are athletes, but others are 
myopic, wobble-legged, flat-chested lads who couldn't gallop ft 
yards with a cow-skin bladder without coming down with the 
shakes, policeman's foot, measles, and coronary thrombosis." For- 
tunate, we think, that Mr. Austen Lake has not written an article 

on Massachusetts State Collich.

This is a horrible verse entitled "GUESS WHO," a weekly feature 
in the Mount Holyoke News. Personally, we did not realize that 
a woman existed who liked studies, athletics, and romance sim- 
ultaneously. Dear gals, we aren't much at guessing, but we sus- 
pect that you speak of : Yehudi's sister.

One evening we were waiting in 'Hamp for the Amherst bus. 
Sitting on the rail beside us was an old darkie who introduced 
himself and gave us some paternal advice. "I never," he drawled, 
"gave nobody no bad advice no time — mm-h'mm!" We told him 
that we realized that, "judging from your appearance, sir." And 
he replied, "Just call me Sam — mm-h'mm! Jes' look at dem two 
Amhers' college boys hitch-hikin' thar. They won't get nowhere 
in dis-heah world; they expect to get somethin' for nothin'. But a 
fellah who takes the bus and pays his fare will be a big man. 
soon as he graderates from college. Be honest, son. I got where I 
am becuz I was honest — mm-h'mm." And Sam brushed a ciga- 
rette spark from his old, uncreased, patched trousers. Just then 
the bus stopped and we were sorry that Sam could not begin his 
lecture on the evils of drinking.

Boccanegra" and "Boris Godouno". 
He sang before an audience of 10,000 
in Cleveland in the Metropolitan 
Concert" there. 

Carola Goya 

Carola Goya, in her recitals of 
Spanish dances, has created a veri- 
table furore in every city in which 
she has appeared from Atlantic to 
Pacific. Her last tour from New York 
to California and return was a suc- 
cession of triumphs, and demand for 
a return engagement followed nearly 
every appearance. 

The Kraeuter Trio 

The Kraeuter Trio comprised three 
solo artists of notable individual 
achievement who have fused their 
gifts into an ensemble. 

Two of the group — Karl Kraeuter, 
violinist, and Phyllis Kraeuter, 'cell- 
ist — represent the eleventh generation 
of musicians of their name. Willard 
MacGregor, pianist, comes of a fam- 
ily association with the tonal art 
for many years. 

Randolph Hokansnn 

Hokanson was born in Bellingham, 
Wash., of Swedish descent. He began 
to study the piano at nine years of 
age. When he was twelve his parents 
brought him to Seattle, where he be- 
came the pupil of Paul Pierre Mc- 
Neely, his solo piano instructor for 
several years. 

The young artist soon was play- 
ing in public. He appeared many 
times in Seattle, climaxing his re- 
citals there by a formal debut which 
brought him his first major successes. 
San Francisco and other West Coast 
cities heard him, and he was pre- 
sented on many college courses and 
over the radio. 

During a tour into Canada, he met 
the late Harold Samuel, great Eng- 
lish pianist and Bach specialist, in 
Victoria, B. C. Camuel asked Hokan- 
son to play for him, and was so im- 
pressed by his talent that he arrang- 
ed for the young American to return 
to England as his pupil.

Softer Club Ready for Harvard 

Tussle at Cambridge 

This Saturday 

By Ray Jakvis 

The rebound from two consecutive 
tie games should snap the State boot- 
ers out of the doldrums and have the 
boys in an extra determined state of 
mind for the Harvard match next 
Saturday afternoon at Cambridge. 
Perhaps there was a little overconfi- 
dence in the ranks down at Connecticut 
after the very promising showing 
which Coach Larry Brigg's boys turn- 
ed in against Dartmouth the pre- 
vious week. 

Jimmie Callahan, the fighting Irish- 
man from Hadley deserves credit f ti- 
the way in which he went out there 
■gainst the UConns Saturday Jim 
was hardly recovered from a sprained 
ankle which he sustained in mid-week 
practice but this did not hamper his 
•peed and class. 

Senior Sol Klaman, veteran half- 
hack, is the fastest man on the squad 
Bad he certainly makes good use of 
his speed in hurrying back from the 
offensive drives to defend his own 
goal. Sol caused more than a little 
discomfort to the Connecticut men 
just as he did against the Indian? of 

Another halfback and sophomore 
is Stan Gizienski who came out for 
soccer at State for the first time this 
fall. Although he played three years 
of good soccer at Hopkins before 
entering college Stan chose to take 
■ crack at football last year. However 
since coming under the guidance of 
Coach Larry Briggs, Stan has devel- 
oped a love for the game that will 
last for a long time and will even- 
tually make him an All New England 

One can hardly say that there is a 
chance for the State booters to cop 
the League championship this year 
hut a victory over the Crimson this 
week would make them definite eon- 
tenders. There will not he many 
smiles in the local ranks during the 
two practice sessions which they must 
be satisfied with this week. The

remaining in the forward wall. The 
two Hank positions are occupied by 
Dave Anderson, left end, and Steve 
Hollis, right end. Bob Norton seems 
to have sewn up the left tackle post. 
Playing inspired ball, the inexperienc- 
ed Mickey Kosciusko has managed to 
earn, at least temporarily, one right 
tackle job. Also inexperienced but 
giant in size, Fred Parker, has been 
handicapped by a recently administer- ; Carl Wornu 
ed vaccination. Nothing will he able I leg injuries. 

Lack of Replacements Reduces* 

Massachusetts Chance 
For Upset Win 

The Rhode Island Hams led by pon- 
derous Warner Kraney and its stellar 
halfback Duke Abbru/.zi invade the 
Massachusetts stamping ground this 
Saturday where they will make a 
spirited attempt to equalize the series 
that now .stands eight games for the

ower of Horsemen Proves Too 

Much for Undermanned 
State Eleven 

Massachusetts State College drop- 
ped its third straight game last Sat- 
urday to a powerful Norwich eleven 
by the one-sided score of 24 to 0. 

The Horsemen wasted no time in 
going into action. Miller, playing for 
homina, threw a nine then a ru; yard 
pass to Prank Liebsi to mark up six 
points in five minutes, and Liebel 
kicked the extra point. A State fum- 
ble on their own fifteen set the stage 
for another Norwich touchdown. Do- 
mi mi carried the ball across in just 
four plays, and then booted the ex- 
tra point. Toward the end of the half 
Liebel kicked a field goal from the 
State 16 to make the score 17 to 0. 
The last Norwich score came in a 
sustained drive from their own 42, 
with long runs ;m>! a ten yard pass. 
Liebel again kicked the point.

passing and the plunging for the 
Rhode Island club. 

Last Saturday the hoys from King- 
ston dropped their second game of 
the season to a smart., heads-up Uni- 
versity of Maine combine. Previously 
Rhode Island had lost to Brown and 
defeated Northeastern and in these 
games they displayed a tricky and 
new offense varying their atack from 
a spread formation with spectatular 
plays to power thrusts with Keaney 
•ariying the oval. 

Massachusetts returned from Nor- 
wich with a 21-0 defeat tacked on 
them. The game served to point out 
several glaring faults which Coach 
Caraway has been working on in the 

en uing practices. 

Definitely rated as underdogs in 
this struggle, the Statesmen will try 
to capture their first win of the season 
by defeating the Rhode Islanders. 
Suffering as they are from injuries, 
the Statesmen will have to depend 
almost entirely on sheer spirit.

Boys From All Massachusetts 

Will Enter Competition 

Here Saturday 

High schools from all Massachu- 
setts will invade State campus Sat- 
urday for the second annual State- 
wide 4-H Boys' Day. The purpose of 
this day is to encourage a greater 
interest on the part of more older 
boys to stay in Club work, to give a 
greater number of boys an opportun- 
ity to visit State College and to stim- 
ulate greater interest in the learning 
of agricultural subjects. 

Three boys from each county of 
the state will compete in various 
contests in poultry, handicraft, elec- 
trification, dairy, garden, and con- 
servation. All the contests will start 
at 9:00 a.m. Each one consists of 
the following four parts: a written 
test on general 4-H Club Work, a 
written test on the project work, 
identification contests, and judging 

The teams scoring highest in each 
project contest will be awarded silver 
trophies. These trophies are not to 
become permanent property of any 
one county but are to be competed 
for annually. A sweepstake trophy, 
known as the Nathaniel I. Bowditch 
trophy, will be awarded to the coun- 
ty scoring the highest number of 
points in all projects. Individual 
medals will be given to the three boys 
receiving highest scoring in all pro- 

During the afternoon the boys will 
attend the football game between 
State and Rhode Island, and in the 
evening there will be a banquet for 
all contestants, Club Agents, and 
leaders at the First Congregational 
Church. President and Mrs. Baker 
will be guests and Roland H. Ver- 
beck, director of Short Courses will 
speak. All awards will be presented 
at the banquet.

State College Students For Employment 

421 Students Receive Part-Time Employment According t( 
Placement Service — 220 Applicants Still on 
Waiting List for Jobs 

The oft-repeated lament of many 
State men and women, "I have to go 
to work," precipitated this investiga- 
tion into the activities of those stu- 
dents on campus who spend the 14th 
of every month worrying about de- 
linquent time slips. Statistics obtain- 
ed from Placement Officer, Guy V. 
Glatfelter revealed that 421 posi- 
tions have been found for students 
this year. This is aproximately 25 C A 
of the total college enrollment. 

In addition there are 220 would-be 
employees who have not been as- 
signed work because of the lack of 
funds. The total grants for student 
employment this year is $19,444. 

Student wages range from a mini- 
mum of $10 a month to a maximum of 
$20. A new policy has been adopted 
this year by the Placement Service 
to replace the fiat $.30 a hour rate 
of previous years. Those students who 
are working on N. Y. A. or S. E. F. 
Funds and whose work is satisfactory 

to the employer, may be promoted :. 
a $.35 or $.40 an hour rate. 1: t; t , 
method, it is hoped that a greuur b. 
terest will be stimulated among the 
students in their work and that thev 
will take advantage of this opportun- 
ity to establish important work hab- 
its. They are now learning to work 
among people, to carry out orders 
and establish reputations of depend- 
ability and responsibility which wfl] 
serve as recommendations to future 

The types of work to which student 
employees are assigned follow the 
general lines of the various aspects 

jof the campus. There are 50 different 

'stations in all, ranging from the < 
nical phases such as laboratory as- 

1 sistants to the more laborious tasks 
such as dish-washing and janitor 
work. These statistics are ample proof 
that State men and women have plen- 

! ty to keep them busy during their 
spare hours.

The oriental theme of the central

three years, and has at last become 
a reality through the work of Pro-

ental influence may be slightly evi- 
denced in the individual exhibits of

The action of the Student Life Committee in 
limiting fraternity vie parties has been the 
tenter of student discussion for a week. The 
situation at present limits each fraternity to one dance per month. 
The interfraternity council has been asked to submit recommen- 
dations on the problem. 

We are interested in this action, but more particularly in 
the motive for it. We wonder if the limitation is intended simply 
to limit dances, or to limit extra-curricular activity. We can see 
no other possibilities, and can see no logical basis to either of 

To consider the first, as the more unlikely, we must assume 
that dancing is undesirable. If it is to be prohibited in fraterni- 
ties, then there must be some substitute for it. People aren't going 
to study on Saturday night, and they are going to have dates. 
And no college student is going to have three movie dates a month. 
It will simply mean that students will be forced to go to dine and 
dance resorts. We don't claim that students don't when there are 
vie parties, but we do claim that more will be forced to. 

If the action is a measure of eliminating extra-curriclar ac- 
tivity, someone had better see a doctor. We appreciate that there 
is a probl* m of balancing study and extra-curricular activity, and 
We realize that many students are greatly overworked in these 
activities. Hut we haven't been putting out any ColiegiafU on Sat- 
urday night, and we haven't seen many other lights burning ln|the safest place in England, to cite 
student offices. And our fifth columnists tell us that the light bill

Joe Bart 

My Friends, 

This week let us discuss a matter 
which is close to the heart of each 
of us. It is a matter which has bean 
the bedrock of democracy. It is a 
matter for which OUT forefathers 
fought, and for which the warm, red, 
blood of youth has been shed. This 
matter is our personal liberty. 

Lincoln gave his only life for 
preservation of the Union. Wash- 
ington risked his personal fortune, 
his good name, and his short satin 
pants to espouse the cause of 
freedom. P. T. Barnum searched 
all over the face of the earth to 
find things that would make the 
pursuit of happiness a less tiring 
chase for the truly intelligent 
people of this country. Should I 
do less than these three great 
partriots could I refuse to serve 
in the liberation of my fellow 
man? Do I disregard personal 
gain when such things are at 
stake? No! Should I shrink from 
the thought of service to my 
country? Heil do nothing of the 

The matter of which I speak is the 
weekly convocation. You are all fa- 
miliar with the unjust system which 
the fiendish, capitalist controlled ad- 
ministration has devised to pi event 
the masses from arising against their 
tyrannical rule, i luring the first sem- 
ester the poor freshmen, sophomores, 
and juniors are Compelled to attend 
Convocation. While there, their plus 
tic minds are filled with propaganda 
about how badly the peace-loving, 
righteous nations across the seas con- 
duct themselves. They are told that 
poor soldiers are killed ami mangled 
bv bombs. Hut they are not told that 


President Roosevelt raised his eyebrows. "Did I?" he ask*. 
(Compliments of the Brown U. Willkie Club) 
A few weeks ago we predicted that tanks would replaet 
"Salter," "Miss Johnson," and the other State hosses. After Cot 
onel Young's recent article and an editorial in The Norwich <;„.. 
don, we acknowledge our error. Just when the old cavalrymen 
had begun to mourn for the nostalgic odors of leather, neatsfoot 
oil, saddle soap and just plain horse, they read that the Army :> 
about to get back to fundamentals. 

Although mechanized equipment is not to be denied, the hur- 
ts also not denied. And the glue factories must look elsewhere. 
Twenty-six years ago in a Texas border town, Maj. (Jen. 
1. Franklin Bell addressed a cavalry regiment: "Ride right up 
to them, stick the muzzle into their backs and squeeze the 
trigger, but make every shot count. 

Hard-boiled General Bell knew that there was nothing pretty 
about killing, and war means killing. He merely was sidetracking 
sentimentality for the cold practicality of a .45 automatic pistol 
The technique changes, but as in football, the fundamentals 
remain the same. The U.S. Army plans for the most powerful 
actual cavalry in history. Re-organization will soon be an- 
nounced. Plans call for 19,802 animals to augment 17,000 still 
in service. Evidently, therefore, the State R.O.T.C. unit may 
expect changes but not changes from "damned likeahle" 

horses to iron horses. 

Military observers have learned that while airplanes are 
great in preparing the way and while panzer divisions do some 
clearing on their treads, all would be in vain without supporting 
infantry. Also, for sheer mobility and stilletto-like thrusts, noth- 
ing can top the cavalry as a supporting unit for both infantry 
and tanks. Yes, horses will be used on problems in rougher hr- 
rain than the flat lands over which tanks move speedily. The Ge* 
mans used 18,000 cavalrymen in the lowlands and in Fr 
Horse-drawn artillery was among the first to enter Paris. Hun- 
dreds of thousands of horses were used in transport work. And 
so, fellow-soldiers, with the courtesy of Lt. Moffit of Norwich. 

"Stand to heel !" 





MEDALS A loi of nations in this world are engaged in locking 
the door alter Hitler stole the horso. the harness, and 
the one-horse shay. Well, we've locked a few doors in our time too, 
bu1 here's once we're going to jump the gun. 

A good many of us are engaged in extra-curricular activities. 
And we all take the knocks and bumps and miss the praise. Put 
along in May. we do get an academies medal, and it actually means 

We're wondering if it can't mean something more. We like 
the <>ne we got. but we had to hang it up on the mirror because 
we feel conspicuous wearing it ribbon and all. Now what we would 
like is a smaller, neat little clasp pin, that we can pin on our 
lapel. And we wonder if a good many other students wouldn't 
favor this move. Anyway, we ask for opinion and comment, and 
hope to see some action. 

Anyway, we could let some cute frosh coed wear 'em! 

an example, is the Army. The fact 
that most of the casualties occur 
among the civilian population is not 
pointed out to these .soft-minded indi- 
viduals in the lower classes. 

..Hut these lower class individuals 
are helpless. If they refuse to 
attend Convocation, with no suh- 
lety the names of the non-atten- 
ders are taken down on the White 
List. When a name appears too 
often the offender is marked for 
retaliatory measures too horrible 
to relate here. 

Fear of the White List effectively 
prevents non-attendance. The only 
thing left to do is to organize under 
leaders for the rebellion against the 
infringement against their personal 
liberties which the administration has 
been permitting — nay, .sponsoring. 
Hut there are no leaders. Some 
shrewd diabolic mind in the admin- 
istration has seen to it that the sen-

Yesterthoughts sounds like it should 
be something very listenable and very 
danceable. The surprising thing is 
that it is both of these things. It's 
Glen Miller's idea of how this old 
Viennese air should be played, and 
he certainly has caught something 
of the Continental flavor in his ar- 
rangement of this very melodic mel- 
ody. The treatment is subdued, and 
for once. Miller subordinates the or- 
chestration to the melody. So, every- 
body's happy, including, Mr. Miller. 
Mr. Barreca, and you. if you happen 
to catch this record for a listen or 
a dance, The reverse, "A handful of 
Stars" is also a setup for happy 
dancing, but any Miller disc put out

as nicely for all the difference it 
would make to anybody who hadn't

Service, is designed to give training 
in Extension Service upon graduation. 
There are approximately 300 members 
drawn from both Massachusetts State 
and Stockbridge. 

The local club is ready at any time 
to assist the State office, when events 
are held on this campus in connection 
with the 4-H. Recently, in conjunction 
with this duty, the locals played host 
to 200 boys here for 4-H Boys' day. 
Members of the club prepared and 
served the banquet for the guests. 

The officers of the club are Chester

Extension Service, is acting as Fac- 
ulty Advisor. 

Dr. William G. Vinal, professor of 
Nature Education and Director of the 
Nature Guide School, is the author 
of a recently published book entitled 

"Nature Recreation." 

The book begins with fundamental 
nature experiences and proceeds to 

an analysis of community nature ac- 
tivities and how they should be spon- 1 
sored by public educators. By its de- 
parture from the traditional biologi- 
cal approach to the subject, the book 
is unique.

Freshman English Students to 

be Given Silent Reading 


1136 men registered in the town of 
Amht rsi last Wednesday under the 
ective Service Act. Of this num- 
ber, 284 were from Massachusetts 
State College and 108 from Amherst 

All these students are in temporary 
security in that they may defer en- 
listment until July 1, if called. 

Soon lists will be posted in the re- 
live home towns of the regis- 
trants, and these lists will provide a 
number from each applicant. 

As numbers are drawn in a na- 
tional lottery, the holders of the win- 
ning tickets report to their local 
draft boards for classification. 

If there is no basis for deferment 
or exemption, then there is a physical 
examination, with standards less 
strict than for enlistment, but strict- 
er than for the World War I draft. 

If the physical examination is 
passed successfully, then the regis 
trant is in.

The first meeting of the Debating 
Club, held Thursday, October 17, in 
the Seminar room of the Old Chapel, 
was attended by several students, in- 
cluding three members of last year's 

Plans were discussed of the possi- 
bilities of practice debates with Am- 
herst College and the American In- 
ternational College, to begin near 

A Southern trip, as well as week- 
end trips to Boston and New York 
are also under consideration. 

The meeting w r as presided over by 
Herbert Weiner, captain, and Francis 
Shea, manager. 

Meetings will be held bi-weekly in 
the Seminar room of the Old Chapel. 

For the first time this year the 
freshman class is being subjected in 
its English courses to the Silent Read- 
ing Tests, put out by the University 
of Iowa, to determine which students 
read more slowly than others, ami 
with less comprehension, and to make 
an effort to provide remedial meas- 
ures where most needed. The English 
instructors will look for a correlation 
between the results of these and per- 
formance in English 1 and 2. At the 
end of the year the entire freshman 
class will be re-examined to see what 
etfect, if any, a year of college train- 
ing may have had. 

The program was carried out to 
some extent last year on a voluntary 
basis for the Freshman class in the 
Stockbridge School, and will be given 
a further trial there this current 

The Department Of Psychology, un- 
der the general direction of Prof. C. 
C. Neet, has been for two or three 
years interested in this remedial read- 
ings program as developed variously 
in many colleges and secondary 
schools. The whole program includes 
an examination of the students in 
reading, and will be followed by a 
further personal analysis of the poor 
readers to discover, if possible, the 
reason for their difficulty, and the 
prescription for certain remedial ex- 
ercises for those students who are 
likely to profit from them.

In connection with the open forum 
to he held Tuesday evening concern- 
ling Proportional Representation in 

i class elections, Dr. Uohr explained the 

characteristics and intricacies of the 

system. This explanation will permit 

the student to prepare questions of 

interest to discuss at the forum. 

The important fact to remember 
is that Proportional Representation 
is a method of electing a multi-niein- 
bered body, such as the Senate, Ma- 
roon Key. or W. S. (J. A., and is not 
to he confused with Preferential Vot- 
ing which is used to el.ct single of- 
ficers, such as class otbeers and fra- 
ternity and sorority officers, 

The former merely aims to prevent 

the majority from obtaining full rep- 

| n'scntation and leaving the minority 

,in the dark with no representation. 

'The latter tries to prevent the elec- 
tion of a candidate who is inaecept- 
able to a majority of the voters. The 
practice of asking a voter to indicate 

I his preferences is the same in both 
Cases, but the process <>f counting the 

I votes is altogether different 

In counting preferential ballots, 

any candidate who obtains a major- 
ity of first choices is declared elected. 
If no candidate obtains a majority of 
nr*t choices, the second choices are 
added to the first choices ami if the 
combined totals give a candidate a 
clear majority he is declared elected. 
In like manner the third choices are 
considered. This selection is similar 
to that of the new fraternity rushing 
system and indicates the willingness 
of the majority to support a can- 


The advantages of Proportional 
Representation are: (1) ETective 
voting — nearly every vote counts; (2) 
Minority representation; (3) A new 
freedom of voting; (4) Development 
of voter interest; (. r ( ) Majority rule; 
t''») Reduction of fraud. 

Proportional Representation is a 
method of voting designed to bring 
more representative local government 
and to make practically every ballot 
count in an election, thus to insure 
each group or party in the college 
representation according to its voting 
strength. It was designed to make im- 
possible minority political machine 
voting in a single block to capture an 
• 'bet ion because other voters scatter 
their support among many candi- 

Proportional Representation is the 

most democratic system of voting 
ever used. It provides real represen- 
tative government, for every consid 
arable group or party according to 
its voting strength is represented. 
PR and the job of voting is simplici- 
ty itself. It only requires that the 
vot.r shall indicate his favorite can- 
didates in the order of p reference. 

Proportional Representation has been 

used as the theme of government in 
countries in every part of the world 
and in cities throughout the country. 

Proportional Representation is an 

Important topic in municipal govern- 
ment and is being tried in campus 
• lections. Every student who isin- 
terested j M the way his '.rovornmcrit 
i Operated, both as a municipal plan 
and as a campus program, should in- 
vestigate this qtttetion before Tues- 
day's discussion. 1840 is election yea r 
and every student should take a 
special Interest in political affairs.

First Class Rating of '40 "Index" 
Encourages '41 Board to Aim High 

By Clu't Kuralowicz 

Massachusetts State College's 1941 
Index- First Class Honor Rating. As 
last week's Collegian announced, the 
'40 State yearbook was given a rating 
During the early days of the Rus- of "excellent" by the National Scho- 
Bian Revolution, Prokofiev wrote his lastic Press Association.

same period that the Classical Sym 
phony was composed, Prokofiev wrote 
the powerful incantation "Seven", 
derived from an ancient Sumerian 
legend. Scored for a large orchestra, 
chorus, and tenor solo, it can be cited 
as Prokofiv's most "leftist" work, if 
we take the word "leftist" as signify- 
ing extreme modernism fed on disson- 

Perhaps the most novel of 
Prokofiev's later work is his 
Symphonic Fairy Tale for child- 
ren, "Peter and the Wolf", writ- 
ten for production at the child- 
ren's Theater in Moscow in 1936. 
It introduces a narrator, telling 
the story of the young boy, Peter, 
who, over the objection of a 
grouchy grandfather, sets forth on 
the adventure of conquering the 
Russian equivalent of the Big Bad 
Wolf. The interesting feature of 
this work is the use of instrumen- 
tal leitmotivs, so that the grand- 
father is portrayed by a bassoon, 
the bird by a flute, the cat by 
a clarinet, the wolf by horns, and 
Peter by a romantically advent- 
urous theme in the strings. 
Almost fifty, Prokofiev is in a for- 
tunate position among composers of 
the day. His music is accepted, not 
only by the sophisticates of the 

Only Editorial Consideration 

The following is a transcript from 
the Yearbook Scorebook. In criticiz- 
ing, scoring, and rating yearbooks, 
the N.S.P.A. logically places emphasis 
upon the editorial considerations of 
production. Its purpose is to measure 
those factors over which staffs have 
major control; it is not the purpose 
of the Critical Service to attempt to 
evaluate the technical side of produc- 
tion except as they affect the final 

The opening section had an original 
approach and a nice key. The pages 
could, however, and should have been 
more harmonious and coordinated in 
design. The opening pages are attrac- 
tive and harmonious in page layouts 
and typography. 

The views were definitely not 
adequate in size. They should have 
included students to add life and in- 
terest to the pictures. The division 
I pages were average since they did 
>mt carry out the plan or theme. 

Pictures of the administration and 

| faculty lacked chiefly an easy ref- 

| erence from picture to listing or vice 

i versa. The pictures should have been 


More Snaps

Soviet Union and abroad. In his na- 
tive land, he holds no academic 
courses and teaches at no conserva- 
tory, but his influence on young 
Soviet musicians is profound. There 
is a sense of mental health that per- 
vades Prokofiev's music, which makes 
him a factor in the movement to- 
wards musical optimism. We might 
add, that anyone who can produce 
anything of an optimistic nature, is 
worth a hearing. 

In answer to our heartfelt and oft 
repeated prayers, the heavens opened 
and out i loured a flood of records. 
Columbia responded to our pleas to 
the tune of three albums, consisting 
of works by Stravinsky, Ravel, and 
Franck. This marks the end of an 
era for this column. The long weeks 
of wandering in the parched, desert 
are over. The green fields of Canaan 
are near at hand. No more apologies 
for a digest of old recordings. If we 
can only stir the RCA-Victor folks 
into activity, the future is secure. 
Fair Warning 

We must admit that nobody has 
button-holed us between classes, that 
no groupi of indignant students have 
Stormed the ('<>lr</itin office, but in 
spite of this conspiracy of silence, a 
certain profile will grace the head of 

this column at Ml early date. Fair 



included more pictures showing 
students in classrooms, laboratories, 
shops or cither scenes of currieular 

activities, demonstrating actual class 
procedure. The reader did not obtain 
a sense of appreciation of the educa- 
tional program being accomplished in 
the school. 

Pictures in the senior or album sec- 
tion were rated "very good" although 
some of the portraits tend to be flat. 
The snapshots vary widely in quality. 
The statistics department of the Index 
is given praise for the excellent 
summaries of seniors, which were 
were significant in listing activities 
and were arranged and edited so that 
attractive page lay-outs were formed. 

Group pictures of the underclasses, 
however, could not be easily identified 
because of the small head sizes. 

Treatment of the organizations and 
activities had average reader interest 
and appeal in their lay-outs. The three 
academic honoraries should have had 
at least one good group picture. The 
write-ups were excellent, possessing 
a suitable style, all the necessary in- 
formation, and reader appeal. 

More Action 

The athletics section lacked good 
action. Intramural and women's 
athletics were not adequate since far 
more students take part in these 
than in varsity sports. Literary 
material in the sports was labelled 
"good;" but the lay-outs of pages 
were static and monotonous. 

As a whole, the H>4<) Index was 
triven a high consideration. 

The Index's index in the opening 
section received favorable mention. 
The color on the division pages and 
in the first of the book was used to 
enhance the beauty and appeal of the 
book. Page plans had pleasing har- 
mony. In text, the book was editorial- 
ly effective although it was not so 
well rated in layouts and pictures. 
The educative value was only average 
to the thankfulness of students and 
shocked surprise of the faculty. Cover, 
binding;, and paper in the book was 
of high quality and excellent. As for 
the financial status (subscriptions 
through the Student Tax), the critics 
wrote "Quite a picnic 




Weiss berg 


The two greyut parties of this 
greyut country, have been gradually 
drawing up their forces, slowly but 
surely girding their loins for the 
fray which is about to transpire on 
that greytust of all days, presiden- 
tial election day. We, as votes, and 
future voters, are being bombarded 
by promises and persuasions even as 
London is being subjected to Hitler's 
form of persuasion. Although we sup- 
posedly are neutral in the present 
world conflict, it is vitally necessary 
that we should not remain neutral in 
the present national conflict. Each of 
us will have to determine in his own 
mind what each party, if it wins suc- 
cess, will probably do for the country 
in the future, and how well this per- 
formance will be in accord with the 
needs of the nation. In order to be 
somewhat of a factor in this decision, 
we hereby put in our two cents worth. 

To make clear our stand at the very 
outset, we believe that the New Deal 
has done more for the general wel- 
fare of this country during its two 
terms than has any other adminis- 
tration throughout the whole history 
of the nation. It has, against the wills 
of conservatives of both parties, car- 
ried through or greatly re-enforced, 
(1) Legal support of collective bar- 
gaining through the National Labor 
Relations Act which has made such 
advances towards furthering the 
cause of unionism throughout the 
country, (2) the Labor Standards 

a third term which influence the 
minds of many voters and which the 
Republicans are exploiting to the ut- 
most. Of course, it is a fact that ng 
President has ever had a third term 
but neither have we ever had a period 
of crises such as the present one. 
Neither has Thomas Jefferson nor 
any other historical figure quoted 
against it ever barred the possibility 
of a presidential third in time of 
great national need. It is very fan- 
tastic to imagine that Mr. Roosevelt, 
even though he has of necessity, had 
to assume temporary dictatorial pow. 
ers, is thinking of destroying democ- 
racy, or of establishing a family- 
dynasty here. 

And then there is the biggest is- 
sue of all. There is no room for con- 
servatism in politics in a period when 
the times demand basic revaluation 
and reconstruction. Since Fascism 
and Naziism are pretending to offer 
the world such revolutionary values, 
we must also offer our people a course 
of action, an inspiring and progres- 
sive course which will give the rest 
of the world a lesson in intelligent 
and humanitarian leadership. 

Although we don't believe that the 
New Deal is the ideal answer, we 
think it is the best available one, and 
that it is moving, with Franklin D. 
Roosevelt at the helm, toward a bet- 
ter and stronger America. Whereby 
Mr. Roosevelt has proven his 
strength and ability during the past 

Act which protects minimum wages eight years, what has Mr. Willkie to

Security Act, (4) a federal housing 
program, (5) greater control and 
more efficiency in the executive branch 
of the government, (6) reviving of 
the Supreme Court through radically 
needed changes; and in addition such 
project! as unemployment relief, the 
AAA, great hydro-electric projects 
at vital points throughout the coun- 
try, the cheapening of electric serv- 
ice through the Electrification Ad- 
ministration, road building, flood 
control, conservation of soil and for- 
ests, regulation of finance by the 
SEC, a youth program which many 
of us have taken advantage of dur- 
ing the last few years, as well as 
strengthened reciprocal trade treat- 
ies. That is a record for internal re- 
forms, which criticize as they may, 
Republicans will have to admit is 
quite some field of action. 

Regarding the issue of foreign af- 
fairs, we ask why it is that Mr. Will- 
kie is supported by nearly all the 
pro-Nazi and Fascist elements in the 
country. Even though the Republican 
candidate agrees with the Democratic 
in his stand on aid to Britain short 
of war, conscription, etc., etc., Re- 
publicans have on almost every oc- 
casion in Congress been on the isola- 
tion side of the fence. Mr. Roosevelt 
definitely believes that, if necessary, 
private industry should also be con- 
scripted for the general good. Mr. 
Willkie has openly stated in the past 
that such a course would be against 
his principles. Since labor has already 
been conscripted, why should not pri- 
vate industry be? 

One of the main criticisms by 
the Republicans has been against 
Mr. Roosevelt's economic policy. 
Republicans argue that Mr. 
Roosevelt has discouraged bus- 
iness by restrictive legislation 
and has destroyed the confidence 
of big business in him by his 
failure to balance the budget. 

The actual facts are that most of 
the restrictive legislation has been 
abolished by the Supreme Court, and, 
balancing of the budget could not 
have been accomplished except by in- 
creasing taxes and decreasing expen- 
ditures, which course has been im- 
possible in these times of great crisis, 
and which the Republicans, if in of- 
fice, definitely would not have done. 

Then there is the bugaboo against

run the motor at high speed, we use

And now what's going on a- 
broad? Air attacks on London, 
air attacks on Berlin, continued 
activity in the Balkans with grow- 
ing uneasiness in Greece, Yugo- 
slavia, Bulgaria, and Turkey. 
Turkey is doing her utmost to 
come to an agreement with Ku- 
sia regarding mutual resistance of 
Germany. In a meeting last week 
at Ankara between Turkish Pres- 
ident Ismet Inonu, and the Soviet 
Ambassador Sergei Alexandro- 
vitch Vinogradoff, Russian aid to 
Turkey was supposedly discussed. 
actual results of the meeting 
were kept a secret. 

Last week, American-made trucks 
loaded with American-made supplies 
for China whipped over Britain's 
Burma road toward Kunming. We 
know that, if China keeps her busy, 
Japan will "stay way from our door!" 
So far we have lent China 85,000,000 
dollars, and there's more where that 
came from. Darn clever, these Amer-

Out to All Dads 
at Game 

If you're taking dad to the foot- 
ball game, the cheering section is go- 
ing to be directly in back and to the 
right of the band. The Senate has 
arranged for cheering sheets to be 
passed out with tickets. The idea is 
to make a solid nucleous for enthusi- 

Incidentally, the cheering last week 
was the best since the days of Louie 
Bush. It showed a hundred per cent 
improvement over previous games. 
There's only one suggestion. And 
that is, that the frosh as well as the 
upper classmen, learn the songs as 
well as the choruses. 

The cheer leaders are working 
again this week on the leading of 
singing. They also went to the Stock- 
bridge Convo so that the two-year 
men will know how and be ready next 
Saturday to cheer with State.

the state of Europe, the annual Rec-

the theme of "Recreation, and the

A model town meeting, another evi- 
dence of the American way of life, 
will again be a feature of this year's 
conference, according to Dr. William 
O. Vinal, chairman of the conference 
committee. At this meeting will be 
discussed community problems relat-

emphasis will be placed upon fiction,

No longer will they have to angle

If they merely turn over the job to

With opening Convo the season shall

is smart) 
From then on the men — upperclass 

we prefer 
Since most of them are far above 

amateur — 
Shall date the Frosh coeds day after 

And see that the dears get around 

the right way. 

To informals, vie parties, to sings 

and ballets, 
To games, Amherst week-end, to 

lectures and plays 
They will escort the coeds until they 

are sure 
Which sweeties or smoothie they wish

Then each man will pledge his 

bewildered conquest 
To whichever sorority he likes the 


Thus men can follow fraternity rule 
And Frosh femmes go steady instead 

of to school. 
However, there's one fact we cannot

That sorority gals are worse off than

Not only will they have lost their

a majority.

The Military Ball, first big social 
event of the year, will be held Decem- 
ber 6th. Harry Scollin '41, is chair 
man of the alfair and his committee 
members are Wes Aykroyd, Jack Has- 
kell, Ernie Bolt, George Bragdon, Boh 
Hall, and Win Avery. 

The Ball promises to be even more 
colorful than usual this year as the 
committee has announced its inten- 
tion of having the Drill Hall decorat 
ed by a professional interior decorat- 
or, in this way getting rid of the un- 
inspiring "barnish" look. An innova- 
tion this year will be the giving of 
favors to all girls attending. 
Two Bands 

The Dartmouth Barbary Coast or- 
chestra and the Fenton Brothers' or- 
chestra are those under consideration 
by the committee and both bands are 

exceedingly fine. Those who attended 
the Tufts week-end held here last 
year, will remember the excellent job 
that was done by the Barbary Coast 
boys from Hanover. 

The Military Ball is the high-light 
of the fall social season as it is the 
only formal dance held during the 
first term. Contrary to popular opin- 
ion, it is not primarily for th© mili- 
tary majors, but is open to all stu- 
dents. Freshman, in particular, are 
invited to launch their social careers 
by attending this very colorful func- 

Dancing will be from 9 until 2 
and the traditional crowning of the 
honorary colonel will be a feature of 
the evening. Subscription to thp Ball 
will be $3.50 per couple with a pos- 
sibility of future price reduction. 

Consumers of Vitamin D Products Protected 
In Northeast by Work of "Nut" Laboratory 

Innocent consumers of Vitamin D 
products throughout New England 
and eastern New York are protected 
by the work of the Nutrition Labora- 
tory of Massachusetts State College. 
Headed by such nutritional authori- 
ties as Dr. Helen S. Mitchell, Re- 
search Professor in Home Economics 
and Dr. Carl R. Fellers, Research 
Professor of Horticultural Manufac- 
tures, both of whom have been called 
recently by the government on na- 
tional defense work, this department 
carries on tests for Vitamin D con- 
tent in milk and poultry feeds. 

Milk dealers in this region are un- 
der contract to maintain a certain 
Vitamin I) content in the milk that 
they sell. Each dealer must have his 
milk tested at the laboratory at least 
once a year. At certain intervals, a 
collector takes a bottle of milk from j 
the dealer's truck, and unknown to' 
the dealer himself, sends it to the lab- j 
oratory to be checked. These tests 

are designed to detect the unscrupu- 
lous dealers as well as to see that a 
high Vitamin D content is maintain- 
ed in all saleable milk. 

There are two processes for pro- 
ducing high Vitamin D content in 
milk, namely the Wisconsin and the 
Vitalis methods. The Wisconsin meth- 
od consists of subjecting the milk to 
ultra violet radiation, while accord- 
ing to the Vitalis process, Vitamin 
C concentrate is added directly to the 

The Nutritional laboratory also car- 
ries on extensive work in checking 
poultry feeds as they are used by 
poult rymen in this region. A Vitamin 
D deficiency in the diet of chickens 
(as well as humans) causes rickets. 

In addition to this work in the lab- 
oratory, a special research problem, 
until recently carried on by Dr. 
Mitchell, is being conducted to deter- 
mine the Vitamin Bl required for 
good health in elderly people.

Center of all interest at this time 
of the year is the preparation for the 
Horticultural Show, which is to be 
held as usual in the Physical Educa- 
tion Building on November 1, 2, and 
8. Professors Thayer, Rand and Blun- 
dell, the student executive commit- 
tee and all Flori and Hort students 
are doing their combined best to make 
it the most outstanding display in 
State history. The centerpiece, an 
Oriental garden, although very diffi- 
cult to construct, is giving all con- 
cerned an unusual opportunity to 
prove what ingenuity combined with 
a knowledge of plants and shrubs, 
can accomplish. So, with school green- 
houses proffering myriads of radiant 
blooms, with enthusiastic faculty and 
students offering timely advice, plus 
good hard labor, how can cur show 
be other than a long-to-be- remember- 
ed hit?

William Peck spoke about his work 
at the Connecticut Arboretum, which 
is owned by the Connecticut College, 
at New London. Robert Hutchinson 
told about his trip to Canada this 
summer, where he visited the Mon-

speaker, Rufus Hilliard discussed his 
summer's work in a flower shop. 

Later in the evening, Professor 
Blundell discussed plans for the com- 
ing Hort Show. 

Following Professor Blundell's re- 
marks a brief business session was 
held and plans were made for the 
next meeting, which is to be held on 
November 7. 

A cordial invitation was extended 
to all freshmen interested in horti-

Little do we on the State campus 
lie the value of the Maroon Ley. 
This organization, composed of soph- 
Otn ires, welcomes visiting teams and 
performs all the small jobs which can- 
not be handled by the visiting teams. 
The Key provides members of the 
group to the teams. Then, the "pro- 
visions" see to it that all opponents 
get everything they want, from tape 
to water. 

Therefore I take this opportunity 
t" pat our Maroon Key on the back. 
w« do not realize their value until

obvious lack such as was found by

Strong Hilltoppers Favored to 

Beat State — Jacobson 

Plays Well 

This Saturday afternoon at one 
o'clock Coach Larry Briggs will trot 
his charges out on Alumni field to 
take on the league leading Trinity 
team. Those soccer fans who saw the 
Maroon and White out play Dart- 
mouth have another thriller in store 
for them. 

Trinity boasts of a strong club 
which to date has beaten Worcester 
Tech 2-1, and M.I.T. 2-0. State has 
had more than its share of tough 
breaks but the Brigg-adiers will try 
hard to win their first game of the 
current season this Saturday. 

On hand for the Massachusetts- 
Harvard soccer game at Cambridge 
last week were many State alumni 
some of whom played soccer under 
the tutelage of Coach Briggs, others 
who were folowers of his teams. Art 
Howe, Stan Podolak, Sam Golub, Rog- 
er Brown, Earl Brown, Milt Auerbach, 
and Lou Wilson were in the stands 
engaged in what was a novelty to 
them, cheering for the men in Maroon | 
and White who were playing in the 
positions that they once held. All 
agreed that the men on the field did 
a fine job, all felt that State played 
well enough to have beaten the Crim- 
son, and they predicted that the soc-, 
cerites would still win their share of i 

The squad had the pleasure of' 
viewing the West Pointers on parade 
and also enjoyed the Harvard-Army 
football tilt. 

Credit is due to Woody Jacobson 
for his stellar performance against 
the Crimson — Woody trucked his 
big frame around to good advantage 
breaking up plays and clearing the 
oval to safer grounds. Clint Allen 
of Greenfield, who is rapidly improv- 
ing, has plenty of fight in his small 
body and will be valuable to Briggs 
during the next two years of his col- 
lege career. Jim Callahan tied up 
Harvard's highly touted center-half, 
Edgar, and, in spite of his short 
stature, outheaded the tall Crimson 
player most of the time. Ed. Podolak 
once again played the entire game. 
It seems that Ed just can't be tired 
out. Red Mullaney and Steve Papp 
handled the wing positions nicely. 
Captain Frank Simons, Clem Burr, 
Stan Gizienski, and Klaman each 
played their usual flawless game in 
the backfield. Vern Smith deserves an 
orchid for the way in which he de- 
fended the State goal. Several times 
Vern emerged from scrambles, heav- 
ing the ball into the clear after what 
seemed to be inevitable Harvard goals.

On Monday evening, October 7, 
Alpha Sigma Phi started the ball roll- 
ing in the Interfraternity race by 
by pinning a 28-0 defeat on Q.T.V. 
in touch football at the cage. The 
soccer game which immediately fol- 
lowed proved to be another humilia- 
tion for Q.T.V. with Alpha Sig coming 
out on top by virtue of a 1-0 score. 

The Lambda Chi pigskin toters 
rolled up another one sided score 
when they took Phi Sig 52-13. 
The soccer game went to L.C.A. also, 

Last Wednesday, Theta Chi won 
the football game against Kappa Sig 
by a single touchdown, G-0. The Kappa 
Sig hooters then retaliated to take 
the soccer game 1-0. 

The next evening, Alpha Gam took 
both events from Sig Ep. The score 
in the football game Was 19 to 6, 
while in an especially hard fought 
soccer game, A.G.U.'.s single point was 
talied in an overtime "sudden death" 
period by Cole. 

Friday night found Alpha Sig on 
the short end of a H8-14 score in the 
football game against A.E.P., as 
Greene paced the Pi-men. The soccer 
game went the way of the previous 
encounter, 1M>, thus chalking up two 
digits in the win column of A.E.P.

Second Period Free Kick Gives 

Crimson Victory — Edgar 

Makes Tally 

In a game that saw neither team 
scoring from the field, the Massach- 
usetts State hooters played Harvard 
to a standstill only to loaf 1-0 on a 
penalty kick in the last half minute 
Of the game. For *8 minutes the im- 
proved defense of the local booters 
fought oir valiant attempts of the 
Crimson to score while the Briggs- 
men even found time to sandwich in 
many scoring drives themselves. It 
was avide&t that the defense of both 

teams was superior to the offenses 

State being weakened by the absence 
if Gibby Arnold who was out with 
i -plained ankle. 
Late in the third period State \v;i | 

awarded a penalty kick but the try 

for goal was stopped by the Crimson 
goalie. Another penalty kick, this time 
called against the locals, proved to 
be the deciding factor when Edgar, 

center-half for the Cambridge boys 

managed to score past Smith.

Evidently everybody but the jani- 
tor at Worcester Tech plans to visit 
Alumni Field Saturday afternoon. 
For the Engineers' cross country team 
accompanies the football contingent 
and will be warmly greeted by Coach 
Derby's varsity dalers over the local 
course finishing between the halves 
of the football game in the second 
home meet of the young season. 

However, the season is not too 
young to already have furnished defi- 
nite information on both teams. A 
glance at the Worcester Tech record 
shows that strong Trinity found them 
an exceptionally well-balanced team 
as they eked out only a 20-29 victory 
over the Tech sextet. Kenneth Hunt 
missed first place for Worcester on 
that occasion by a bare one second 
margin as he whipped out B Stretch 
drive that missed catching the win- 
ner by an eyelash. The time, 2<):f>7, 
beats anything ever run on the more 
arduous State course. 

Therefore, Kimball and his lads 
have no SOfl touch Saturday. They 

must run heady, balanced races if 

they are to repeat their standout 

showing of last week against M. I. T. 

Kimball and Putney ran just BCfe a 
'ace as they finished the course under 

wraps despite breaking the hill and 
dale record. Their team mates pulled 

through for the team balance that 
was enough to win. 

If the treatment can be repeated 
this time, and if the injury bttgaboO 

keeps clear of the state locker room 

door, a close, hard meet will result 
with State spiking the pre-meet fig- 
ures of the Engineers. 

By Sid Murachver 

In the main feature of Dad's Hay, 
the Massachusetts State gridmen will 
hook up with the Worcester Tech 
Engineers in the forty-first annual 
clash between these two traditional 
rivals. In the series which dates back 
to 1887, the Statesmen hold a 26-13 
etlge over the Engineers, with one 
game having ended in a scoreless tie. 
Worcester will be out to avenge last 
year's 7-0 defeat and should provide 
stilf opposition. 

After the encouraging showing 
against Rhode Island State last week, 
Coach Caraway's charges should 
break IntO the Win column for the first 
time this year. Although they thor- 
oughly outplayed the Hams, chalking 
up eleven first downs to their four, 
the Statesmen ended up on the short 
end of a 8-3 score. 

The tackle position, vacated by 
Wermo, who is rounding into shape 
and should play this Saturday, was 
handled superbly by Joe Earkin, ex- 
end. His field goal, into the teeth of 
a strong wind, provided State with 
its only points. Stan Salwak was the 
Only player to pick up an injury, and 
that was a slightly bruised shoulder. 

With Benny Preitas ready to step 

into the backfield again, along with 
Matty Ryan, Cil Santin and Jim Mul- 
lock, the Statesmen are ready to chalk 
up victory number one. 

Encouraging to State rooters, but 

'not to Worcester Tech fans is the 
news that neither Captain Elmer 
Scott, fullback, nor Don Atkinson, 

[quarterback, will start Saturday be- 
cause of injuries. Outstanding in a 
losing cause last Saturday, when 
Trinity shut them out 18-0, these 
two players will be missed when Sat- 
urday rolls around. Except for a few 
slight injuries in the line, it appears 
to be intact and should be ready to 
start by Saturday. 

The Statesmen hold the edge in the 
kicking department with Oil Santin 
doing the booting. His superb position 
kicking last Saturday, away from 
the dangerous Huke Abbruzzi, was in- 
strumental in preventing the shifty 
Hukc from breaking away. The En- 
gineers play a wide open game, tak- 
ing to the air quite often. State's 
pUS < has been steadily im- 
proving and should stall the Engi- 
neer's passing attack. With Benny 
Preitas back, the Statesmen's ground 
attack should work to Ix-tter advan- 
tage than Tech's. With Budy Evans, 
Stan Salwak, John Seery, Carl Nas- 
jtri, Syd Zcitl.r, and John Crimmins, 
State will have no fear of being worn 
down, another important factor in the 
Engineers' downfall las? week. The 
line with Captain Ralph Simmons, 
Brady, Kimball, Larkin and Mann, all 
sixty minute men, is well fortified 
against the Engineers' offense.

Large Group of Personnel Officers Attend 

Annual Parley Held Here Last Weekend 


At the recent conference of College 
Placement Officers, President Hugh 
P. Baker welcomed the group and 
discussed the development of the pro- 
fession. His pertinent remarks struck 
a responsive chord in the audience 
composed of men and women inter- 
ested in personnel work. 

Among the guest speakers were 
Dean F. T. Spaulding of the Harvard 
Graduate School of Education, Presi- 
dent W. H. Cowley of Hamilton Col- 
lege, and Dr. Esther Lloyd-Jones of 
the Teachers' College of Columbia 

Three Tests 

Dean Spaulding set forth a theory 
for admittance of students to col- 
leges in which there were involved 
three tests for new students: Judg- 
ment of the faculty, scholastic apti- 
tude, and an objective test in Eng- 
lish. He stated that, in his opinion, 
it is not what courses a student has 
taken in elementary school, but how 
well he has done them that really 
counts. Discard the entrance require- 
ment subjects, is the essence of the 
statement. Harvard, he stated, has 
and still does admit students on fac- 
ulty recommendation. In continuing, 
he remarked that as a result of a 
controlled experiment, it was found 

I that 60% of the students had jobs as 
' their main objective in going to col- 
lege, with the remainder, on the 
whole, studying toward an intellec- 
tual objective. 

President Crowley traced the his- 
tory of the college education, point- 
ing out that the American college has 
sprung from English precedent set 
in the universities of Oxford and 
Cambridge. The object of these in- 
stitutions, apparently is to produce a 
"whole" man. They are trying to 
produce well rounded citizens, both 
in the practical and theoretical fields 
of learning. 


The work of the placement service 
in the past decade was aptly sum- 
marized for the conference by Dr. 
Lloyd-Jones of Columbia. One strik- 
ing point offered, was the great gap 
usually existing in colleges between 
the registration office and the place- 
ment office — yet, the former serves 
to usher in the student, the latter 
sees him going out. 

An observer at the conference might 
well have felt that the phrase which 
could serve to summarize the major- 
ity of the discussions could be the 
conflict of the student's intellectual 
objective and a career.

iors are not permitted to attend until 
subjugation to the will of the capital- 
istic administration has become a hab- 
it among the lower class individuals. 
Should a senior try to attend, he will 
find no reserved seat for him, which 
makes it difficult to gain admission. 
This is the depraved picture which 
comes to light. In your dark hour I 
will be your shining light. Follow me 
to tlie bright dawn of liberty to the 
scintillating splendor of the rebirth 
of freedom. Tears come to my eyes. 
Pardon me, please. I am overcome, 
and must blow my nose. 

My plan for coping with this sad 
situation is simple. Any freshman, 
sophomore or junior who refuses to 
become victimized by false propagan- 
or bow to the will of South College 
Diay see me about getting excused 
from Convocation for only twenty- 
five cents per week. When figured on 
the basis of hours, the cost is ,001f» 
cents per hour. This is a bargain, as 
you see. 

But my plan will not work 

unless I have the cooperation of 
those seniors nho wish to become 
leaders. Those of you who are 
seniors and who feel you can 
afford to function in this historic 
liberation of the lower classes 
may buy seats in the house of 
Convocation for the mere sum 
of eighteen cents, including fed- 
eral tax. Y'ou seniors who have 
hard heads and will not be swayed 
by the propaganda from the plat- 
form must not miss this opportu- 
nity to help. 

If there are any seniors who want 
source for pin money or coke money 
you may see me about a job. No ex- 
perience is necessary. The pay may 
be small — about 10 cents each time 
you sit in a designated seat in Con- 
vocation — but just think, if you are 
in college for ten years the amounts 
add up to fifty dollars. Isn't that 
worth going after? Besides, remem- 
ber the service you will be rendering 
to the fatherland. 

We will close this meeting with the 
singing of that greatly loved though 
only recently popularized song, "Heil, 
Hril, die Qanse (ft AUc Ihr."

Display of Etchings, Woodcuts, 

and Lithographs in 

Memorial Hall 

Fine Arts Exhibit 

Another in the fall series of Fine 
Arts Exhibitions at Massachusetts 
State College is now on display at 
Memorial Hall. 

The exhibition, open to the public 
daily until November 1, consists of a 
display of woodprints, block prints, 
wood engravings, and similar media. 

Represented in the present exhibi- 
tion is the work of Asa Cheffetz of 
Springfield, internationally known in 
this field, and several publications of 
the Kansas City Woodcut Society. 

In explaining the technique of the 
woodcut, Dr. Frank A. Waugh, chair- 
man of the Fine Arts committee at 
the college, points out that "The 
woodcut was formerly used extensive- 
ly in the illustration of books and 
magazines, even in newspapers. 

"The half-tone process has re- 
placed the woodcut in these publica- 
tions, but a few artists, striving af- 
ter rich prints rather than quick re- 
sults, and willing to print slowly on 
hand presses, have kept the woodcut 
alive and now use it in the produc- 
tion of many fine though compara- 
tively expensive, prints. 

The present exhibition is open to 
the public every day and evening.

itus and former head of the Depart- 
ment "f Landscape Architecture, lias 
been appointed to the local Selective 
Service Draft board. This board

ically in Massachusetts. Professor

Coeds Lead Guests 

The social season at Massachu- 
State College will be formally 
opened with a bang Saturday eve- 
ning when some 400 guests descend 
upon the eleven State fraternities for 
thi' Amherst Weekend dances. Es- 
incially prominent this year is the 
unusually large number of alumni 
who are returning for the affair. 

Next to the State College coeds, 
Mt, Holyoke and Smith girls lead in 
the number of guests. Other women's 
colleges which will be represented at 
the dances this year are Wellesley, 
Our Lady of the Elms, Lasalle Jun- 
ior College, Simmons, Radcliffe, and 

A drastic change in the character 
of the dances is to be noted this year. 
The trend in years past has been 
toward informality, and this year six 
of the eleven houses are holding in- 
formal dances. Three houses are hold- 
ing semi-formal dances while only 
two are clinging to the formal tradi-

Tickets Limited 

Preceded by a parade and Amherst 

Rally, the auditorium will be packed. 

Tickets are available only today and 

tomorrow, and are limited in number. 

Check Hardware 

Those attending are requested to 
check guns, fruit, and hardware in 
the ante rooms. 

Military precision in plans has 
been the key note in the preparation! 
for the thirty-first annual Horticul- 
tural Show which Opent at the cage 
tomorrow. And undoubtedly precision 
is needed to coordinate the 12,000 
hours of labor which will have been 
expended by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow. As 
I in each of the past twenty-two years, 
the entire enterprise will be guided 
by Professor ('lark 1,. Thayer, head 
of the Floriculture Department. 

As has been his custom, he will 
leave the largest share of the re- 
sponsibility to members of the stu- 
dent body. Student leaders this year 
are two seniors of the horticulture 
division, Kenneth Waltermire of 
Springfield and Merton Ouderkirk of 
Brockton. Aiding them are practical- 
ly all members of the division, num- 
bering over one hundred students. 

The outstanding exhibit of the 
show will be the central theme which 
is planned and erected by a commit- 
tee especially appointed for the pur- 
pose. In keeping with this year's mo- 
tiff, the center piece will be Mt. 
Fujijama. The general outline for 
this has been planned for almost a 
year and specific plans were carried 
on all summer. Since the rock cas 
cade in the Oriental garden has a 
particular significance, it has been 
necessary to seek out just the right 
type of rocks to carry out the theme. 
Busy at this has been Professor Lyle 
Blundell who is in charge of making 
the idea a reality. Another activity 
has been the growing of small trees 
into curiously restricted shapes to

Much as we hate to admit, it would 
be "gilding the lily" to say that State 
has a 60-60 chance. It is not definitely 
known whether the captain Ralph Sim- 
mons will be available for service. 
The burly guard is still on the in- 
active list and may be for some time. 
To add to Coach Caraway's troubles, 
Carl Werme, veteran tackle, may be 
forced from the lineup again this 
Saturday due to his leg injury. 

However, the Jeirmen from the 
other end of town are not taking the 
State squad as lightly as one might 
imagine. They know that Kenny

However, the minor detail of selling was not as successful. The 
programs were sold for 15 cents, certainly a reasonable figure. If, 
however, the program was designed for service rather than profit, 
it could be sold in the same form for a dime. And it is surprising 
how much faster a student pulls out a dime than fifteen cents, 
with evidently more of a psychological than a monetary consider- 

At any rate, we wish to add a word of approval to the new

ANOTHER Al Eldridge, having gotten the band under control, 
BOOST has turned to other fields and come up with a good 

idea. It is by no means original, but its worth trying again. 

Once again, as in the academics activities medals, we are sound- 
ing a note for the future, and this is concerning pre-exam exams. 
We are all familiar with the crop of hour exams that seem to 
arise like magic the week before finals. And we're pretty sure that 
most of them are avoidable, since undoubtedly some are designed 
to afford last minute grades that professors should have gotten 
long ago. 

Therefore we add our plea that the faculty work in cooper- 
ation in scheduling SUCfa exams, and to eliminate them as far as

YOUR State enters another Amherst game with a fighting 

CHANCE chance. Your chance is to equal the spirit and college 
unity that is usually evidenced in the other end of town. 

The best and most interesting Amherst weekend of all time has 
been planned. The student organizations who have sponsered 
these activities deserve your support. 

The first is the parade, rally, and Campus Variety Show tomor- 
row night. We know you'll like the show, and you can also make 
the rest a success. 

The other incident is a parade to Amherst college athletic 
field Saturday. The band will leave the college at approximately 
one o'clock, and will march to Pratt Field, directly past the frater- 
nities and up Pleasant Street. Students are asked to plan to follow 
the band, and demonstrate that 1500 Statesmen aren't going 
to be wrong! 


By Milton 

The much awaited Axis drive to- 
wards the Balkans began during last 
week, with the invasion of Greece 
through Albania by Italians. 

The steps consist respectively of 
the occupation of Rumania by Ger- 
man troops and the gradual massing 
of Italians in Sidi Barrani ready to 
complete the drive through Suez to 
Egypt The remaining steps, which 
probably will include invasion of oth- 
er Balkan nations, will probably fol 
low, once the Italians have definitely 
settled themselves in Greece. 

Britain certainly cannot spare 
many R. A. F. planes from over Lon- 
don, nor men from the Near East. So, 
it looks like Greece with her army of 
150,000 will soon be booty for Mus- 
solini. Come to think of it, all that 
he was getting from Hitler's table 
were crumbs and with so much nice 
cake lying close to him, he was de- 
termined to get a hunk for himself, 
whether Papa Adolf liked it or not. 
The only major help which Greece 
can expect is from Turkey, most of 
whose army is massed at Thrace. 
Several factors are acting against 
Turkish aid, however. The Nazis might 
come whipping into Greece through 
Bulgaria, and thus precipitate a gen- 
eral Balkan War. Fear of Russian 
active resentment and general desire 
to stay on the right side of the right 
people will probably cause Turkey 
to keep her legions at home. 

The Vichy government has yielded 
the use of many of its bases to Ger- 
many and Italy — The raids on London 
are daily becoming less and less — A 
smoking bomb was found on the U.S. 
Army transport Republic, and tossed 
overboard, thus saving 2550 people 
•iboard her at the time — U.S. Ambas- 
sador Kennedy has returned from 
Kngland. Rumors have it that he will 
presently resign, but for various 
reasons we doubt it. — F.D.R., speak- 
ing in Madison Square Garden ac- 
cused the G.O.P. of attempting to 
sabotage the defense program in the 
past and present. — Willkie, in his 
radio rebuttal speech demanded that 
Congress stay in session — a rather 
weak answer to a very strong ac- 
cusation, we venture to say, since 
Congress is of course in session, and 
there are no indications that it will 
adjourn — Reports from Madrid keep 
stating that German troops will not 
push across Spain to Gibraltar — oh 
yeah — Are we to have another flock 
of airplanes in this war that won't 
fly? Reports state that flying for- 
tregees now being contracted will not 
have motors in them until 1942 unless 
Bratt-Whitney company relinquishes 
certain patent rights on air-cooled 
motors which they hold exclusively 
and allows other companies to man- 
ufacture them. This, a real "bottle- 
neck" in the aviation industry, will 
have to be settled soon, very soon. 


Our colleagues from the south end of town have for years con. 
ducted an interesting "extra-curricular" activity. 20% of the 
Amherst College Chest Fund will go to Amherst-in-IIolyoke, an 
institution in the midst of one of the mill-working sections of the 
Connecticut Valley. 

Four Amherst students, who are sent to Ilolyoke each sum- 
mer, have jobs there varying from addressing meetings on Sunday 
to putting on a circus. With the rest of the money some lasting im. 
provement is made for either Grace Church or the Pilgrim House 
which is the church's printing plant. 

This activity, without doubt, is social work with a purpose 
Unknown to most people, work of this sort on the part of the 
Amherst College students gives us "Statesmen" a new insight on 
the so-called "Willies". 

"My Friends! My Friends!" 

At last we have found an explanation for the overwhelming 
Willkie student vote at State and other colleague-colleges. A 
Brown graduate on the governing board of an eastern college re- 
cently had a letter printed in the New York Herald Tribune. 

His statements are pertinent to all interested in the American 
system of education. Through the devaluation of the dollar he 
says the capital value of college endowments has been diminished. 
Most of the college endowments must be increased by a third 
or a half to have the same return which they had prior to the 
inauguration of Mr. Roosevelt's policies. 

More students have asked for aid in their education; fewer 
parents have been able to pay for the tuition of their sons and 
the value of savings has been diminished, the return from 
savings and investments has been reduced and the cost of living 
has been increased. Further, from the standpoint of the pro

The big mystery man and question 
mark in American dance music is, of 
course, Artie Shaw. Ever since he 
went strongly ethical about a year 
ago and refused to furthe.- compro- 
mise his genius with legitimate swing, 
he's been harder to keep track of 
than yesterday's newspaper. He's had 
everything from a symphonic swing 
organization, to a Dixieland band, 
and now has done something with a 
Raymond Scott type outfit called, 
| "The Gramercy Five." It's a screwy 
combination if there ever was one, 
but after you've heard it you're not 
quite sure whether you liked it or 
hated it, so you try it again to make 
sure. That goes on for a great many 

He uses a trumpet, clarinet, 
electric unit ar. bass-fiddle, drums 
and a hot harpsichord. So help me, 
and shades of Bach, Beethoven, 
and Mozart, an honest to goodness 
harpsichord that sounds like a 
cross between a harp and a zither. 
On "Special Delvery Stomp" as 
record for Victor, the harp- 
sichord steals the show wth ts 
hauntng tonal qualities, especially 
in the interpretation of the jazz 
idiom. It sounds exactly like a 
plucked instrument. The rest of 
the record is rather common en- 
semble work much in the manner 
of Ray Scott's old quintet, and is 
very reminiscent of "War Dance 
For Wooden Indians." 
One of the pleasanter surprises of 

the week was Tony Pastor's Bluebird- 

ing of "Ready, Get Set, Jump." It's 
a medium tempo rhythm number 
grounded in deep substantial chord- 
ing and orchestration. 

It is in the good bass manner of 
"Tuxedo Junction," and loses nothing 
by the fact. The long sustained 
rhythm beats are tied up with what 
there is of rift* melody into something 
that is not only a must-dance number, 
but a must-listen tune, as well.

Mr. Roosevelt has repeatedly demanded taxes to soak the rich 
and especially to soak the dead. Under his policy, income and 
inheritance taxes have been materially increased and the opportuni- 
ties for gifts to colleges correspondingly diminished. The respon- 
sibility for this rests upon Mr. Roosevelt and particularly in con- 
nection with charities it must be kept in mind that Mr. Roose-

If we are to prosper as a democ- 
racy there will have to be several 
changes in the method of conducting 
examinations on this campus. The 
rlffhtl of the students are being 
trampled OB. There is complete lack 
of an announced system under which 
exams are conducted. No one knows 
who his friends are or who the proc- 
tors are. No one even knows whether 
the exam is safe, whether it is being 

proetored or not; there is even com 
pleta Ignorance about the status of 

the instructor. Will you be poune.d

by Irving Rabinovitz 

"I am particularly desirous that 
there should be no misunderstanding 
about this work. It constitutes an ex- 
periment in a very special and limited 
direction and should not be suspected 
of aiming at achieving anything other 
or more than what it actually does," 
This was the challenging statement 
that Maurice Ravel flung at the Am- 
erican audience who were to hear 
his "Bolero". 

"Before its first performance," 
he continued, "I issued a warning 
to the effect that what I had 
written was a piece lasting 
seventeen minutes and consisting 
wholly of 'orchestral tissue with- 
out music* — of one long, very 
gradual crescendo. There are no 
contrasts, and there is practically 
no intervention save the plan and 
the manner of execution. The 
themes are altogether imperson- 
al. . . folk tunes of the usual 
Spanish-Arabian kind, and (what- 
ever may have been said to the 
contrary) the orchestral writing 
is simple and straightforward 
throughout, without the slightest 
attempt at virtuosity . .1 haw- 
carried out exactly what I in- 
tended, and it is for the listeners 
to take it or leave it." 

In answer to this challenge, listen- 
ers have been taking it, and liking 
it, in every increasing numbers. The 
recent recording of "Bolero" by Leo- 
pold Stokowski and the Ail-American 
Youth Orchestra (the story of the 
creation and the phenomenal success 
of this group has been told in a 
recent issue of the "Collegian") will 
please those who are familiar with 
the work, and make "Bolero" addkt- 
of those who are hearing the fully 
orchestrated version for the first time 
The Stokowski version requires thir- 
teen minutes, while Ravel, when he 
personally conducted the number took 
nineteen minutes, but the power and 
impact of this forceful music seems 
to lose nothing by the quickened 
tempo. It is a fault, not, perhaps, : 
the n-cording, but of the modern phoa- 
ograph, that the mighty cnse 
seems slightly distorted as it is emitt- 
ed from the speaker. 

This work is truly a chalh a

ships will be examined at room 410, 
Post Office Building, Springfield, on 
Wednesday and Thursday, November

The examinations will be open to 
anyone with two years of college edu- 
cation. If a candidate successfully 
passes the examinations, he is given 
a nine months course of instruction 
at army air fields. The first three 
months consist of ground school train- 
ing. Thereafter there is a three 
months course in basic flying and a 
three months course in advanced fly-

many candidates falling by the way- 

When the course has bean complet-

they have two alternatives. The can-

for the army or they may return to 
civil life and fly for the private air-

Leonard Warren , hardline, of the 
.Metropolitan Opera Association, was 
described as "the best artist who has 
appeared on campus in a hm^ time." 
It MM Doric Alviani, Music Instructor, 
who made this statement. To enlarge 
upon his opinion several other per- 
sons on campus were asked to give 
their criticism of the concert, 

The amateur critics include Dr. 
Charles Fraker, Dr. Gilbert Woodside, 
Mr. Stowell Coding, the Rev. David 
Sharp, Jr., and Mr. Alviani. 

It wa.s agreed hy all live men that 
the most impressive feature ahout 
Leonard Warren wa.s the great power 
of his voice. Dr. Fraker said that the 
recalled Caruso to his mind. 

Another point on which there seemed 
to he general agreement was Leonard 
Warren's lack of color and person- 
ality. "There was something cold 
about him though his recital was 
flawless," was the way Mr. Alviani 
described the artist. Mr. Coding in- 
dicated that what appeared as lack of 
color might have been simple nervous- 
ness for this is Mr. Warren's first 
concert of the season. His great 
desire to go over may have made him 
unduly uneasy. 

Each critic had some opinions the 
were not shared by the rest of the 
group. Mr. Sharp indicated that the 
proper medium for Warren's voice 
wa.s in operatic work. For the light 
lyrics Mr. Warren needed a little 
black book to keep himself prompted 
on the lines. But in the arias he was 
at his best, without the little black 
book. Mr. Sharp also stated that the 
interpretation of the light songs was 
rather poor. "I was bitterly disap- 
pointed with 'Drink To Me Only With 
Thine Eyes'. 

"We go to such a concert primarily 
to hear the voice," commented Dr. 
Woodside. The stage appeal was not 
the important thing. That the voice 
of Leonard Warren impressed and 
ple aa e d him is apparent because Dr. 
Woodside expressed a desire to hear 
Warren in an opera "where he could 
really let himself go." Dr. Woodside 
also pointed to Warren's poor ability 
in the interpretation of the lighter 

Dr. Woodside expressed disappoint- 
ment at the use of the little black book 
which contained the words for the 
lighter songs. "It did seeem to me 
that he should have known them. I 
was not too disappointed for I waited 
from aria to aria. The other selections 
just filled in." 

Dr. r'raker was definite in his opin- 
ions. He said that Leonard Warren's 
Voice was marvelous. "He cannot 
sing softly and beautifully though," 

commented Dr. Fraker. When it came 
to a statement about the lighter 
lyrics Dr. Fraker groaned. "He had 
no business singing them. He was 
apparently poorly advised in choice 
of songs for the program." 

Doric Alviani said, "Warren's was 
a big voice, a voice that is a "conduct- 
or's hand." dream. He is a singer 
who sings like an instrument, and 
•an be called upon for tremendous 
volume by an uplifting of a con 
doctor's hand."

Statesmen Will Rely on Freitas and Ryan fo r Win Over Jeffs on Saturday 



By Hi;kt 1 1, Sportt Editor 

W ell, the big week of the year is Here at last . . . State sports 
hit a new high in number with four contests going on within a 
feu days of each other. Naturally, the biggest event of the week, 
will be the annual State-Amlurst football game. 

The game this year will be preceded by a rally on Friday 
night Rallies in past years have not turned out as well as could 
bo expected from a student body the si/.e of ours. The enthusiasm 
of those who did turn up for these pep meetings ca»i not be denied. 
The students cheered, the band played, the speakers exhorted, and 
the bonfire blazed away right merrily. Hut, there were not enough 
students . . . not nearly enough to make things interesting. It is 
not a great tribute to a school when only about ten per cent of the 
enrollment shows up for a football rally. 

How about just a little bit more of a turnout? Nobody expects 
every student in school to be present at a rally. There would not 
even be enough room for them all. (Rationalizing again!) But 
one thing that should be expected is the presence of the entire 
freshman class. (Don't take me literally.) About 200 frosh, 183 
sophomores, 56 juniors, and 1 1 1 •> seniors would be perfect. The 
plebes could mill about making noise in general, the sophs could 
present a united front for something, the juniors would direct the 
flow of energies, and the solemn seniors would lend the slight touch 
of dignity to the occasion. (Add two sprigs of parsley and cool 
before serving.) 

Let's see all of you, then, at the rally Friday night. And, 
above all, let's see all of you at the campus variety show after the 

* * * * 

It is Hot the usual thing for this column to take a poke at 
anything. I usually go out of my way to boost State affairs, and to 
put a slight gloss over everything. Nevertheless, there is some- 
thing that is just a bit annoying at the football games. Cheer- 
leaders are supposed to lead the cheering sections. And when I 
say cheerleaders I mean cheerleaderettes also. Or should 1 say 
especially? The young ladies in the white sweaters who sit on the 
sidelines during the games are nice ornaments indeed, but, if I 
am not mistaken, that is not their chief function. It is true, that 
one or two of them languidly takes part in a cheer once in a great 
while. In fact, one of them takes part in every cheer with a fine 
display of enthusiasm and vigor. How about the rest of these 
"cheerleaders?" What we want is more puffing and less posing! 

* * * * 

And now to even off things a bit, a boost is in order. A boost 
to the band for their splendid co-operation in the cheers. The new 
musical cheer introduced during the Worcester game is one of 
the snappiest and catchiest song-cheers ever heard in these parts. 
This number caught on spend idly at the last game, and should go 
over even more strongly at the Amherst game. Keep up the good 
work, lads.

On a windswept Mount Hermon STAR PASSER 

gridiron last Saturday, Coach Kill 
Frigard's yearlings, after submitting 
themselves to a six to nothing pasting 
in the first half, finally reared back 
in the concluding chukkers to ram

their only score. 

The frosh snapped out of it in the 
second half with the wind at their 
backs. Race and Borowski alternated 
in flipping eight successful passes out 
of eleven attempts for a grand total 
of 155 yards. Roth Race and Fideli | 
made substantial gains by skirting 
the ends with a mastery and agility 
befitting a terpsichorean artist. The 
climax, perhaps not included in the 
art of terpsichore, was presented by 
Erny Borowski's torseau-twisting

Massachusetts Gridders Gain First 
Win of Season Over Worcester 12-6 


The Massachusetts State varsity 
football team gained its first victory 
of the season and its twenty-seventh 
of the series against Worcester Tech 
last Saturday at Alumni Field. When 
the final whistle had been blown, 
State led 12-»; thanks to Matty Ir- 
an's forty-three yard return of a punt 
■lid Benny Freitas' fifteen yard end 
BWeep for touchdowns. The outstand- 
ing defensive player was <;ii dentin 
while Freitas and Ryan shone offens- 

The Statesmen were without the 
services of their star right guard. 
Captain Ralph Simmons, who will be 
OUt indefinitely with a back injury. 
The source of the injury has not yet 
been determined. Joe Larkin, M art 
inn captain, lead the team faultless- 


At the very outset of the game, the 
Statesmen showed they meant busi- 
ness. With Ryan, Freitas and Santin 
alternating on the carrying assign- 
ments the Caraway charges kept 
pushing the Engineers back until they 
were forced to punt from behind their 
own goal. Ryan caught the ball on 
Tech's forty-three and aided by his 
own shiftiness and John Brady's goal- 
line blocking out of the safety man 
scored State's first touchdown. Joe 
Karkin's try for the extra point was 

At the start of the fourth quarter 
State picked right up where they left 

oir and started marching again. They 
moved the ball down to the Tech 
fifteen yard line where Benny Freitas 
SWept his righi end and scored stand- 
ing up. The try for the extra point 
was wide. 

Worcester's only score came late in 
the fourth period against State's sub- 
stitutes. Belloa, Tech's fullback, fak- 
ed a forward pass, then plunged 
through his own left tackle and rac- 
ed twenty-three yards for the touch- 
down. The try for the extra point 

Tech was kept in their own terri- 
tory most of the game due to Gil 
Santin's expert position kicking and 
sterling line-backing up by Santin 
and Freitas.

Rut, still very much remembering 
the setback which they suffered at the 
hand/; of an inspired underdog W'es- 
leyan team in their opening Little 
Three clash at Middletown last week, 
the Sabrinas are completely disre- 
garding past records and compara- 
tive scores and are preparing for 
Saturday's battle in anything but a 
light manner. Completely convinced 
that the underdog team is the one 
which is usually loaded down to the 
gunwales with enthusiasm and spirit 
and is therefore extraordinarily dan- 
gerous, the Jeffs have completely for- 
gotten about the Statesteis' record 
which lists one win in five starts and 
are priming all their siege guns in 
an attempt to stop this State team 

| which is gunning to bring the title 
back to the north end of town for thv 

, first time since 1984. 

With victories hung up over Ho- 
Ibart, Bowdoin and Rochester and a 

I stellar stand against a heavy Har- 
vard team behind them, the Jeffs 

were caught short by a Wesleyan 

team which was fully primed last 
Saturday and are not in any way 
desirous of permitting the same thing 
to occur this week.

Therefore, they will be very much on 
their toes in Saturday's classic. 

Amherst Strong 

The Lord Jeffs have an exception- 
ally fine squad this season. Sue: 
backs as "Tommy" Mulroy, Sweeny, 
Koebel, Callanan, and Smith an 
adept at both passing and runninjr 
while linesmen such as Captain 
Smythe, Hubbard, and Skeel make 
an almost impentrable wall. 

Blood Also Hurt 

However, there is one important 
factor in our favor. That is, Bobby 
Blood, Amherst triple-threat right 
halfback, may not be able to piay due 
to a hip injury sustained in last 
week's game against We.sle.yan. This 
in itself may determine the game; for 
Blood, once in the open, is a haul 
man to stop. Then too, his timely 
kicks out of dangerous territory are 
a source of dismay to all opposing 

The Jeff men will most likely take 
to the air in an attempt to run 
rough-shod over State. This, cum 
bined with the lightning stabs at the 
line by fullback Tom Mulroy and 
the deceptive spinner plays engi- 
neered by "Chick" Koebel, should 
cause plenty of trouble. 

Ryan and Freitas 

State, on the other hand, lacking 
a good passing combine must rely on 
the steamroller tactics of Benny 
Frietas and the hedgehopping idio- 
syncrasies of Matty Ryan for a win. 
Ryan and Frietas figured prominent- 
ly in last week's first win of the 
son over W. P. I. as time and time 
again they battered the middle of the 
line for considerable gains. Another 
boy who turned in an admirable per 
formance and who should BSe con- 
siderable service in the coming fiacus 
is "Bud" Evans. Buddy, small hut 
potent, made a gain practically I very 
time he carried the leather. Gil San- 
tin, galloping left-half hack, also did 
work worthy of note and should ap- 
pear in the starting line-up al 
with Ryan, Frietas, and Stan S 

As has been already been | nted 
oul, a good passing attack CO 
wonders for State. This dearth of 
passers and of pass receive 
been one of Kb Caraway's el 
Acuities thus far.

a pretty fair bet that the old I 
drives will be \ery much in I 
regardless of what other "rSttk

Igflbrinal Eleven Has Wins Over Brown and Tufts with Losses to 

Yak' and Wesleyan— Maroons at Full Strength for 
Pint Time Since' Initial Contest 



Arnold, Potter, and Erickson 
Expected to be in Good 
Game Shape 

lining the wildest week-end of 
the fall sports calendar, Coach Larry 
Brian and his booters will play host 
lord Jeffs of Amherst College 
this Friday afternoon at three o'clock 
on Alumni field. This, the most color- 
ful ami most bitterly contested game 
,,f the season for both teams is fast 
lining 'traditional' and is always 
i iportsmanship show. 

Jeffs Are Strong 

Amherst, with its powerful horde 
that has beaten Brown and Tufts 
and lost to Yale and Wesleyan will 
naturally hold a slight edge over the 
Statesmen who have thus far lost to 
Rensselaer and Harvard, and have 
tied Dartmouth and Connecticut, and 
beaten Trinity. However, when these 
two town rivals clash one can never 
predict the winner. 

Full Strength 

Massachusetts will be at full 
strength for the first time since the 
initial game of the season against 
Rensselaer. Gibby Arnold, Spence 
Potter, and Lambie Erickson are all 
expected to be in good shape for the 
tilt and their entrance into the line- 
up will be a distinct asset for the 
Mai Mm and White. Also to be fig- 
ured in is the fact that the locals will 
be out to revenge last year's 2-1 


The starting lineup will probably 
find Mullaney and Papp at the wings, 
Callahan and Arnold insides, and 
either Erickson or Potter at the cen- 
ter pest, In the backfield, Captain 
Frank .Simons left-half, Solly Kla- 
man right-half, and Stan Gizienski 
center-half. Ed Podolak and Woody 
Jseobson will patrol the fullback's 
territory, and Vern Smith or Howie 
Hangs will cover the cage. 


Amherst will bring down a veteran 
team which will find their high scor- 
tr, Matuzsko, at center forward, de- 
' astro, a product of Deerfield Acad- 
emy at one wing and Crary at the 
other. Rowley and Treadwell will be 
at the insides. 
In the backfield will be a halfback 
M Si Packard, Ward, and Chap- 
Baa, a pair of fullbacks named Con- 
"••'■i and Weber. Heisler will be the

Worcester Tech's harriers came 
to town last Saturday to meet State's 
high riding cross country aces— but 
they turned themselves around a few 
hours later and scuttled right back 
to Worcester on the wrong end of a 
18 to 43 lacing at the hands of Coach 
Derby's septet before ammed stands 
at the football game. 

Again, for the second week, it was 
Capt. Bill Kimball and Chet Putney 
that ruled the roost as they poured 
on the oil in the home-stretch to 
stave off a desperate lunge by Wor- 
cester's Ken Hunt that missed catch- 
ing them by three feet. Following 
down the last leg was Brad Greene 
and, a minute later, liuss McDonald 
and Dave Morrill flashed across the 
tape to clinch State's second home 

As per advance claims, Hunt was 
the ablest daler on the Tech team. He 
moved out at the gun to hold down 
a tie for third with Greene through 
most of the course, about 16 yards be- 
hind Kimball and Putney. Moving in- 
to Fearing street across Q. T. V.'s 
lawn at the start of the last mile 
and a half, Kimball shook a weary 
head when told he and Putney had 
only 15 yards on the easy running 
Hunt. "We gotta get more, we gotta 
move out," he gasped. Together he 
and the harder working Putney pick- 
ed up the pace only to be matched by 
the invader, a slender lad who ran 
lightly along. 

Greene fell behind the speedier 
pace. The trio ahead of him circled 
the long lane behind the cavalry 
barns, still step for step, as Hunt 
closed the gap to i yards as they hit 
Alumni Field. 

The runners cut across the green 
swath and entered the long cinder 
track leading to the finish line. Here 
Hunt made his bid. Kimball and Put- 
ney wildly sprinted as they sensed 
Hunt creeping up their backs. Hunt 
moved up to thei rhips trying to 
break through, hung there for an in- 
stant, and then faltered. The pair 
flashed across the finish line in time 
only 4 seconds short of the record 
with Hunt three feet behind. 

The summary: — Tie for first, Kim- 
ball and Putney, State; 3d, Hunt, 
Tech; 4th, Greene, State; tie for oth, 
McDonald and Morrill, State; 7th,

The finals of the annual tennis 
tournament are scheduled for this 
Saturday, providing the weather is 
good, with Arnold Fischman meeting 
Walter Niles for the championship. 

Fischman, former captain of the 
University of Connecticut tennis

with a win over Hanson. Niles reach 
ed his top spot with an upset victory 
over Anderson, captain of the State 

Walt Niles, who played number 
one for his high school team in Mel-

reverse twist service. Fischman plays 
a fine brand of ball from the far 
court ami is especially dangerous 
when he takes the net. His strongest 
stroke is a hard forehand with plenty 
of top spin.

Kappa Sigma's touch football sex-

:!8-LJ0 victory over Alpha Kpsilon Pi 

to win the championship of the foot- 
ball leagues last Tuesday at the 
Physical Education Building, 

Kappa Sigma drew first blood as 
Slattery scored from the A. E. P. 
10 yard line, and tossed the extra 
point. The Pi-men cams back with a 
Greene to Salic pass for ■ touchdown, 

Greene ran the extra point. 

At the half way mark the score

twice in succession with Kill Walsh 
and Mob Kreglio combining for one, 
and Walsh passing to Holmes for the 
other. A. K. Pi. made their last seven 
points on two passes, Greene to Sil- 
verman for touchdown and Greene to 
Kline for the point. Rarreca'a de- 
fensive work for K. S. kept A, &, P. 
from another score. 

The last two K. S. goals came on

Striking early in the first period, 
the Massachusetts State hooters earn- 
ed a well deserved 8-2 victory over 
a weak Trinity combination last Sat 
Urday afternoon in the first game of 

the Dad's Day triple athletic fea- 
ture. Not until Coach I. airy Kriggs 
sent in a host of substitutes were the 
visitors able to show any offense. 

The fireworks began when Lambie 
Krickson, playing his first game at 
center-forward, slipped past the Trin 
ity defense to score the initial tally. 
Krickson is a junior letterman, hav- 
ing played first string ball as a half- 
back last year. He has been side- 
lined for the major pari of this sea- 
son due to a sprained ankle. How- 
ever, when Spence Potter, regular 
center, also was benched due to a leg 
injury, Krickson went into action 

In the second period, lied Mullaney, 
one of the most dependable men on 
the squad dribbled down the wing, 
faked Trinity's Johnson out of posi- 
tion, and sped goalward ramming 
home the score from a difficult angle. 

Again in the third period, Krickson 
took a pass from Jim Callahan and 
whistled an easy goal past the Trin- 
ity goalie. 

There was a definite reincarnation 
of spirit in the State forward line 
with the return of Gibby Arnold who 
fits in like a glove with Callahan, 
Papp, and Mullaney. Gib has remark 
able foresight on plays, and it is set 
dom that he misses his mark on pass- 

The defense of the Maroon and 
White sparkled with a bright luster, 
tightening up at opportune moments. 
Proof of this is seen in the fact that 
the play was concentrated on the 
Trinity end of the field most of the 
afternoon. Galloping Kd Podolak, 
Captain Simons, Jacobson, Gizienski, 
Klaman, and Clem Rurr cleared the 
ball to the forward line on numer- 
ous occasions and protected the home 
goal superbly.

Trinity, Wesleyan, Coast Guard, and 

the favored Connecticut. 

I ! Conns Are Strong 
The strong Cniversity at Conner- 
tieul team which won the meet last 
year with a low score of :;.. points, 
will once again be the heavy favorite. 
The lU'onns are even Stronger than 
last year, boasting perfect-score wins 
over Tnfts, H. U. and M.I.T. Their 
team pulled the stunt of defeating 

two different colleges in the same 
day. Pari of the squad travelled to 

Vale and defeated the Klis 17-11, 
while the rest of the team entertained 
and beat Worcester Poly 20-36. 

"The Statesmen are one of a group 
of four teams with a possible chance 
of garnering the second place behind 
Connecticut," said Coach Derby, "and 
they stand a fair showing against 
Wesleyan, Springfield, and Trinity."

Dual Rare 

This Valley championship has still 
another aspect, for it is always con- 
sidered a dual race by Amherst and 
Massachusetts. The Jeffs have not a 
very strong team liecause of tin; ab- 
sence of Prick itt who has not done 
any running since an appendectomy 
some weeks ago. The Amherst team 
has lost races to Springfield and 
Coast Guard.

early in the afternoon, before the 

varsity race commences. The Maroon 
yearlings have a strong team this 
year and will probably be battling 

Connection, and Springfield for top

Freshman Reception 

With the soft, sweet strains of 
dance music filling the air, the social 
season of Stockbridge was success- 
fully ushered in last Saturday eve- 
ning as the Senior class sponsored 
the Freshman reception in the Drill

joyed from 8 until 11:30. A feature

On October 22nd the Stockbridge

by taking Cushing Academy by the 
same score last Friday. Both victor- 
ies were due to the placement of five 
men among the first eight to cross 
the finish line. This little club is off 
to a good start and the prospects of 
a winning season are very bright. 
They started the season without a 
captain (Vanderhoop was elected to 
that position last week) and no vet- 
erans from last year. Johnson chalk-

1941 Index to Profit by the Experience of The 

1940 Book; Using "Collegian" Criticism as Guidt 

The Index staff is using the stu- 
dents' criticisms presented last year 
by a Collegian reporter of the 1940 
Index as a basis for improving the 
Index. The 1940 yearbook was ac- 
cused of being a child's picture book, 
being written in the style of high 
school narration, lacking athletic ma- 
terial, having vague write-ups, omit- 
ing the feature section, and lack- 
ing clarity in informal cuts. 

The board is taking definite steps 
to avoid any similar criticisms of its 
work. The motto concerning pictures 
this year is "quality instead of quan- 
tity." Each picture will be accom- 
panied by informative detailed cap- 
tions to aid the reader. As for the 
style of writing, the Senior and Jun- 
ior staffs have profited by their ex- 

perience of last year. Besides this 
more mature ability, both staffs are 
filled with a desire and enthusiasm 
to do the work well. 

For this reason, the staff started 
taking action shots of all the games 
at the very beginning of each season. 
The photography board is "shooting" 
all important games and meets. 
From these, they will be able to make 
a more careful selection of the pic- 
tures to be used in the final copy. 
The literary board has also started 
early in doing its write-ups. Last 
year's carelessness was due to last- 
minute emergencies which necessitat- 
ed a rush to meet the deadline. This 
year, the schedule has been so care- 
fully planned that the May 1st dead- 
line is almost a certainty. There will 
be nothing vague about the articles 

on athletics this year. Each game wij 
be treated individually. Besides that, 
there will be a summary of the sea- 
son in each sport. 

Other sections besides athletics 
will be treated in a somewhat sim- 
ilar manner. The yearbook will con- 
tain twenty-three pages entitled "P >e . 
view of 1940-41." This will be a re- 
vival of the much demanded featurt 
section. For example, freshmen ac- 
tivities, religious activities and the 
Winter Carnival will be described. 
The climax of this review will be a 
section on the Commencement activi 
ties. Sargent Studio has supplied the 
board with a fast action camera and 
film so that they will be able to get 
clear cuts. This will enable Pana 
Keil, senior photographer, to obtain 
better informals of the 270 seniors 
and more timely photographs.

Human Relations Are Discussed 

This Morning By 

M.I.T. Prof. 


"Human relations is an art and 
[,,,,t a science," claimed F. Alexander 
Ijjogoun, professor of humanics at 
\I I. T. in his address at convoca- 
The speaker said that the funda- 
mental thing in good human rela- 
tions is to "get the facts." But it is 
hard to get the facts in many modern 
J relationships. Four methods were giv- 
len to correct differences of opinion. 
[These methods are (1) voluntary sub- 
mission, (2) domination, (3) com- 
promise, (4) interweaving interest. 

Voluntary submission means that 
lone side is deprived of contributing 
[or developing as it should. Domina- 
tion is the old law of the jungle. It 
I irets the fastest results but no solu- 
tion by force is ever permanent. The 
speaker claimed that a compromise 
is effected in terms of relative 
strength of two sides. When the sit- 
uation changes enough a fight will 

I !' suit. 

All questions that one faces must 
[be answered sincerely and intelligent- 
lly to get group cooperation. In con- 
clusion the speaker stated that co- 
| operative action shall be achieved 
| some day after a long, unnecessary 

'What does Junior need? A clear 
[space where he can let his glider 
rest undisturbed upon the horses. 
J What does Dad need? Unimpeded ac- 
kw to the coal bin. By the inter- 
weaving of interests, father and son 
I will cooperate in moving the wood 
[pile to under the cellar stairs, in 
■clearing out the accumulation of box- 
je> in the corner, and in slinging the 
screeni from a cradle under the 
■beam overhead, thus providing an- 
jother place for the glider which in 
pW way interferes with the coal bin. 
"That this is a simple illustration 
I m no way detracts from the funda- 
tal truth it conveys."

Tragedy of the Gay Nineties 

Well Received by 


Main Theme of 31st Annual Horticultural Show 


1937 Year's Record Crowd Not 

Equaled Because of 

Wet Weather 


A crowd of 15,595 persons was at- 
tracted to the physical education cage 
of Massachusetts State College dur- 
ing the three days of the thirty-first 
annual Horticultural Show held this 
year on the weekend of Nov. 3. Dee 
pite the inclement weather on Satur- 
day during this year's show, the at- 
tendance figure showed an increase 
of 1500 over last year's report, be- 
cause of the record crowd which 
surged through cage on Sunday. 

Due recognition should go to mem- 
bers of the Hortciultural Department 
headed by Professor Clark Thayer 
and student managers of the show, 
Kenneth Waltermire of Springfield 
and Merton Ouderkirk of Rrockton, 
for the successful direction and por- 
trayal of a difficult Oriental theme. 

The central theme, planned this 
year by the Department of Land. 
scape Architecture, was taken from 
a religious wood cut found in an old 
Japanese book. Professor James Rob- 
ertson, assistant professor of land- 
scape architecture, said this was "the 
first educational theme we have had 
at this show."

There were several really new ideas, 
with several more old favorites haul-

Attending the meeting are. several 
hundred college journalists ir.m all 
parti of the country. Among the fea- 
tures of the three-day session are ad- 
dresses by Charles P. Kettering, vice- 
president of General Motors and 
well known scientist; M. VV. Podor, 
roving reporter of the Chicago Daily

He has been appointed to the pub- 
licity committee of the Winter Carni- 
val Committee. 

The Collegian is without the ser- 
vices of its Managing Editor for the 
remainder of the week. 

The first attempt of the college to 
finance a Student Leader Day was 
made almost a year ago, December S, 
1939, by a joint committee of the stu- 
dents and faculty. They named their 
effort "Campus Varieties." 

The effort was rewarded by a profit 
of $75., almost three quarters as 
much made in the second attempt last 
Friday. However, it gave several 
worthy high school students an op- 
portunity to visit the college and par- 
ticipate in a program designed to un- 
ravel their dreams of college. 

The first annual "Campus Varie- 
ties" was such a display of talent and 
comedy that remarks were heard from 
all sides that it was "one of the best 
performances presented in Kowker 
this season." James Herbert King Jr. 
presided as master of ceremonies with 
■ smooth filling of fun and wit be- 
tween the acts. 

Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg wrote a 
play designed especially for the oc- 
casion entiled "Truth Will Out", 
which provided a wide scope for the 
abilities of the actors. Primarily a 
subjective glimpse of college profes 
■Ore, the play, however wove itself 

about state College professors and 

administrators for the audience to

ARS The college blotter, with which all are familiar, 

GRATIA ARTIS was this year published by the Collegian, an 

arrangement made with the Academics Board. 
Up until three years ago, the blotter was an enterprise of one 
student, who was permitted as much profit as his conscience dic- 

At the time the blotter was alloted to the Collegia*, another 
arrangement was made. Half the profits were to be placed in a 
fund controlled by the Academics Board. Now this fund is quite 
unusual, and deserves some comment. 

It is to be devoted to the purchase of pictures, which may be 
rented by students and hung in their rooms in the dormitories 
and fraternities. 

Now in order to prevent unfair competition, and interference 
with private business, we suggest certain monthly breakdowns 
of this fund. In order to continue the artistic motif now in Vogue, 
at least 50 E8&dre8, cost $25, featuring Mr. Petty, should be se- 
cured. Lesser subscriptions to College Humor, Film Fun, and 
Ballyhoo will round out the variety. Appropriate framings will 
add to the permanency and attractiveness. A few of the more clas- 
sical pieces, such as Whistler's daughter, might be well liked. 

We feel proud that Collegian funds will assure the place ol 
art in the life of our students. 


Last year a student committee outlined plans 
for an alumni home-coming day. The plan was 
approved by the students, administration, and 
the alumni. All that remained was to put the plan into execution. 
The difficulty was that no student found enough time avail- 
able that could be devoted, even to such a meritous cause. It now 
appears that unless some organization, and logically the alumni 
association, is willing to plan the project, with student coopera- 
tion, it will never be realized. 

We hope that this project will not be abandoned. In the face 
of all la- ta willingness of all Involved, success of such programs 
at other colleges, the growing interest of the alumni — it seems 
Incomprehensible that such an event is not already in operation. 

AND THE As an aftermath of Mountain Day, several 

SENATE PAYS bills were presented to the college by property 

owners who suffered damages on that day. Lost 

livestock, and damaged fields were paid for by the student senate. 

It seems a waste of needed money, and poor spirit on the part 

of those responsible, that the senate was forced to perform this 


In the column last week the state- 
ment was made that "geting a good 
mark in a course was the most glor- 
ious and the highest achievement in 
my educational process." There are 
several weak-minded individuals who 
read this column, and do not accept 
this fact as a cardinal truth. 

These same persons point to several 
alleged achievements which come from 
study. They say intellectual curiosity 
is aroused and satisfied. They point 
to the increased knowledge that comes 
to those who study. The indicate that 
social approval accompanies good use 
of time in study. They state that 
study stimulates thinking. How to 
convince these persons that good 
grades are the only important reason 
for study is a great task. 

Curiosity is a condition gen- 
erally and rightfully thought of 
in connection with the extermin- 
ation of felines. As for the men, 
there are few in college who are 
intellectual for that capacity is 
an attribute of age, not of youth. 
Increasing knowledge is a futile 
purpose for studying, for the 
more one knows the more one 
forgets, and more one forgets 
the less he knows- If this pro- 
cess is carried on at a great pace 
the results will be akin to cyclic 
mania. This, certainly, is not the 
high ideal to be achieved from 

The proper use of time spent in 
study will not lead to any social ap- 
proval. In fact, instructors may de- 
velop a burning hate for you if you 
know too much. Your classmates 
classify you as a grind and social iso- 
lation, or the "silent treatment," is 
your lot. The idea that study stimu- 
lates thinking is the crude subterfuge 
of those persons who seek to cloak 
a mediocre piece of mental gymnastics 
with an aura of ponderous signifi- 
CMtce. They don't really beleive that 
thinking is stimulated for nowhere 
do they see a Newton or an Ohm or 
l Maxwell arise from among their 

There remain n<> other conclusions 
for any reasoning mind than that 
high marks are the greatest achieve* 
ment possible of attainment in an 

education. Those who prevent student* 

from getting good marks an 1 hamper- 
ing the process of education, and by 
so doing are undermining the very 
foundations of democracy. They are 
the insidious Fifth Column that will 

bring about the collapse of the Am- 
erican way of life. 

The most vicious force in this 
new American version of Ogpu 
are the proctors for whom much 
hatred is expressed- They prevent 
those students whose sole purpose 
for being in college is to get 
high grades from realizing their 
ambition. They persecute innocent 
students whose sole crime is at-

Comes soon the time of year when sorority women lure the 
frosh into their houses and then proceed to turn dose a brand of 
razzle dazzle that would astonish Dale Carnegie. 

Last week facts and figures arrived at the Collegian office 
from the Maryland Diamondback (U. of Md.) concerning Sor- 
ority Rushing Week which is held earlier than it is here at State, 
High pressure friendship becomes as thick as Mississippi mud at 
the beginning; studies are lost in the turmoil; and finally the 
coed populace on campus takes a Bromo-Selzer and a sight of 

It appears that the sorority members are complaining 
because their studies interfere with rushing. A few weeks ago 
a Maryland sorority member wrote the editor to compose an 
editorial requesting the faculty that exams be scheduled some 
other time besides fraternity and sorority rushing weeks. 
The old-fashioned idea used to be that rushing interfered 
with studying. 

We realize — thunders the Diamondback editor — that a sor- 
ority must rush in order to perpetuate the life and prosperity of 
the organization. But do the sororities have to go about it in 
such a life-or-death, dog-eat-dog maner "that friendships of 
many years may be broken in the course of a week's rushing? 
Rushing COULD be made slightly less hysterical to the benefit of 
rushers and rushees alike. 

Perhaps the sorority members do not mind being driven 
into a state of temporary pledges broken and fewer dreams 
shattered if the Greeks slowed the pace a bit, and took time 
to consider their candidates more carefully. In other words, 
all you "fast" coeds please remove the pressure of your amaz- 
ing celerity from the bewildered rushees. 


This is your correspondent's personal story. It shows what 

four years of college can do for a man. Statistics showed that 

Hoover had 100 more student votes than Smith in 1932. And in 

1936 State College students again went Republican, voting for 

Landon and against F. D. R. 3-2 in a Collegian poll. Finally, last 

month, results from Collegian and other college polls showed that

reporter announced that the story of 
rubber would be the theme of the 
second radio program which will go 
on the air Wednesday afternoon from 
5:15 to 5:45 over the Western Col- 
onial Network. The history of the 
development of the rubber industry 
is centered around the life of Good- 
year and his notable achievements. 

The students participating in this 
broadcast are: Bob McCartney, 
George Hoxie, Marion Nagleschmidt 
John Hayes, and William T. Good- 
win. As an additional attraction, the 
Women's Glee Club will sing. 

The opening program of the Col- 
lege Radio Series was proclaimed a 
success by many listeners on campus. 
President Baker officially started the 
activities and then gave way to the 
future Jack Armstrongs and Orphan 
Annies. The program is produced by 
the students, and represents different 
groups of entertainers on campus. If

To the Editor: 

No one can deny that the Mass. 
State College Hort. Show was attrac- 
tive enough to give Amherst Week- 
End stiff competition this year. How- 
ever, 1 wonder how many realize that 
it was Stockbridge that did 85 per- 
cent of the work on the show for 
which Mass. State got 100 per cent 
credit. Now, I do think that if we 
are to draw upon the resourses of 
Stockbridge (and I don't see how we 
can get along without it) we might 
at least give credit where credit is 
due. So, if my two cents are worth 
anything at all, here's three long 
cheers for Stockbridge! ! 

"I go to State" 

Editor's note: Credit is fine, and 
Stockbridge certainly put in 
their work. But, we must assume 
that you are referring only to 
the execution of the main feature 
and omitting the many student 
exhibits. Furthermore, if you will 
read the press notices, you will 
find Stockbridge credited. 

We can not look at the Hort 
Show and Amherst week-end as 
"competition." If anything, Am- 
herst week-end swelled the at- 
tendance at the hort show slight- 
ly. They are hardly related en- 
ough to affect each other, how-

It has been called to the attention 
of the Colli giav, that there is an epi- 
dt'inic of missing bicycles on campus. 

Many students have requested that 
bicycles be left alone or else drastic 
action will be taken. Some persons 
seem to try to make a habit of bor- 
rowing and then forget to return 
the things. There is a limit to every- 
thing and the situation must be 
cleaned up. Tom has lost count now 
because there is such a large num- 
ber missing. 

Several victims promise DO action 
if the bikes are returned promptly 
and apologetically, but if there are 
no results, a bicycle war will start 
immediately in full force. Some of 
the culprits are suspected and evi- 
dence is being collected for presen- 
tation soon. 

One lad is suspected of having re- 
tired and repainted a bike and riding 
to classes while the victim has to 
ride (if the thumbing is good) or 
walk. Many students have asked Tom 
for aid and he says that the "thieves" 
are to be given one last chance before 
the fireworks start and some people 
are disgraced. 

Thirty-three per cent of the pres- 
ent freshman class in Massachusetts 
State college are undecided as to the 
vocational interests they wish to pur 
sue. Twenty-eight of the freshmen 
boys are definitely interested in be- 
coming chemists of one kind or an- 
other, while forty-five more want to 
be future scientists but are undecided 
as to the specific field they will 
specialize in — whether it will be 
chemistry, botany, entomology, bac- 
teriology, physics, or general sc- 
ience with the intention of becoming 
teachers, laboratory assistants or re- 
search experts. 

The next two most popular pro- 
fessions among the boys are engineer- 
ing and medicine with eighteen stu- 
dents specifying interest in each field. 
Only twenty-one of the two hundred 
and forty-two boys in the class of 
'44 intend to major in agricultural 
fields such as veterinary science, 
animal husbandry, poultry a n d 
<Wry. Other vocational fields of in- 
terest to freshman men range from 
religious work to dentistry. 

Thirty three of the girls in the 
freshman class intend to be future 
Home Economist!; fifteen of these 
are definitely studying with the pur- 
pose of becoming dieticians. Scien- 
tific pursuits are also in high favor 
with the girls, as thirty-five of them 
have intentions of becoming scien- 
tists, or science teachers. Other fields 
interesting the girls range from math- 
ematics and engineering to medicine 
and occupational terapy.

Two art exhibits have invaded Mas- 
sachusetts State College. The first 
now on view at Memorial Hall, has 
as its theme "Sea and Shore." The 
other exhibit is the Columbus Plioto- 
graphic Society's Show decorating 
the walls of Goodell Library. 

The painting exhibit at Memorial 
Hall consists of 20 full size color re- 
productions of famous paintings by 
Homer, Whistler, Cezanne, Rembrant, 
and other accepted masters. The art 
of making reproductions from famous 
printing has developed tremendously. 
So accurate, in fact, has the process 
become that the reproductions are 
often more clean and clear than the 
original. Here at Memorial Hall, there 
are practically perfect copies of two 
of the finest water colors eve rpainted 
by Window Homer, also two of Ce- 
zanne's brightest and best, and a 
typical modern Rockwell Kent. 

Moving in with startling contrast, 
the Columbus Photographic Society's 
Show has now replaced the Boston 
City Club's exhibition in Goodetl Li- 
brary. Typically New England, the 
Boston Show was devoted to quite, 
charming scenes— and printed equally 
conservatively. However, the Colum- 
bus Show is strikingly modern. 
Strongly filtered, dark skies— spot- 
lighted portraits— low angle shows of 
construction all tend to round out an 
exhibit that holds interest. 

On the feature board is a striking 
example Of the type still photography 
produced in Hollywood. This print 
entitled "After Hurrell" is a quite 
successful attempt to emulate the ex- 
otic picture* produced by George Hur- 
rell, ace Hollywood portraitist of fem- 
inine charm. Two art exhibits on the 
campus at the same time give every- 
<>ne a chance to become familiar with 
the works of the world famous paint- 
W* Of ill ages and to see the iamous 
painting* that are rarely within the 
reach of common people. Also, the 
Photography exhibit in the Library 
is notable for its many fine portarits, 
a number of strong architectural 
studies, and still lifes- making a 
balanced show. These exhibitions are 
open to the public during college 
hours also evening and Sundays.

ment of engineering and the depart- 
ments of forestry, chemistry, and 
bacteriology at Massachusetts State 
College has made available increased 
opportunity for special training of 
students in general engineering cours- 
es, it has been announced by Presi- 
dent Hugh P. Baker. 

New Plan 
"The plan," according to Dr. Bak- 
er, "looks toward further integra- 
tion of subject matter courses to 
meet the needs of individual stu- 
dents. It provides a new flexibility 
to the curriculum which may point 
the way to further developments in 
our whole educational philosophy." 

Cutting across department lines, 
forestry will contribute courses in 
structural properties of various 
woods, methods of wood utilization, 
and the place of the forest in public 
health engineering, according to Prof. 
Robert P. Holdsworth, head of the 
forestry department. 

New Chemistry Courses 
Chemistry will make available 
courses seeking to familiarize- the 
general engineering student with 
chemical applications of his work, 
states Dr. Walter S. Ritchie, head of 
this department. 

Certain courses in bacteriology and 
public health, under the direction of 
Dr. Leon A. Bradley, head of the 
department, will instruct the en- 
gineering student in sanitary prob- 
lems, such as sewage treatment, so 
that the engineer building a sewage 
disposal plant, for instance, may un- 
derstand its function and theory and 
thus avoid faults in planning which 
might retard or prevent proper 
chemical and bacteriological action in 
the plant. 

Engineering Department 
The department of engineering, on 
the other hand, will make certain 
courses available to students major- 
ing in these other departments, states 
George A. Marston, assistant profes- 
sor of engineering. 

The forestry student, for example, 
may learn surveying and the prin- 
ciples of simple structures. He may 
study the relationship of forests on 
watersheds to the public health en- 
gineer's problems. 

The chemistry student studying for 
industrial work may obtain courses 
in general engineering which will 
make his particular work of greater 
practical value in its industrial ap- 

The student of bacteriology or pub- 
lic health may obtain familiarity with 
the engineering problems in construc- 
tion of public health faciilties and 
understand more fully the limitations 
of construction methods which must 
be considered in planning public 
health programs. 

Experience is Goal 
Preliminary experience with this 
cooperative arrangement has already 
proved the practicability of the plan, 
according to Professor Marston, and 
the present year will see further 

progress toward increasing oppor- 
tunities for specialisation through 
selection of courses from the various 
cooperating departments. 

ticularly strong all day Tuesda;, 
students grouped around radios 
into the night. Now that the eld 
results are known the students, I 
ing had definite views before, I 
most decided reactions. 


Most of the students seems to U- 
happy that Roosevelt won because 
they feel that the government need] 
an experienced man for a leader 15 
time of crisis. George Kaplan '44 
says the result was no surprise to 
him. He knew it all along. Benin, 
Freitas is another person who had 
inside information. He prophesied at 
the beginning of the week that it 
would be "Roosevelt by a landslide." 
Donald Allan, pleased at the outcast 
of the election because he won fifty 
cents, hasn't quite decided how t<, 
spend it. 

Not all the students have such 
cheerful reactions, however. Matty 
Ryan and Dick Coffin are both ven 
unhappy that Browder didn't win. 
They are both greatly puzzled us te 
how the union is going to survive 
without his guidance. 

The girls are as vehement in then 
reactions as the boys are. Jean Wash- 
burn, the heartiest Republican in the 
Abbey, has sworn that she will al- 
ways wear her Willkie pin even if 
he did get beaten by Roosevelt. Mari- 
on Freedman, telling of the reactions 
of the women in North College, says 
that, in general, the Democrats gloat, 
"I told you so," while the Republicans 
say the world is going to the dogs. 

This it seems that most of the stu 
dents (those that wanted Roosevelt, 
anyway) feel that the right man was 
elected. The others having given way 
to their feelings, are trying to recon- 
cile themselves to the fact that Room 
velt was elected. 

Unexpressed, but generally felt, 
was that college students, as an in 
telligent class, would at least bt 
resolute in their determination for a 
united United States.

"I have your letter of November 
first and since I know very little 
about the Hatch Act, I took your 
letter to the Counsel for the Senate. 
We read over the act in a general 
way and I am thoroughly convinced 
that it in no way applies to members 
of your finance committee, because 
of the mere fact that they receive a 
salary from the State and the Federal 
Government contributes toward the

between the Hatch Act and the free 
service they render as members of

This year's "Campus Varieties" 
surpassed the first in rewards and 
enthusiasm. A profit of approximate 
ly $100 has been r e p o rted by the 
chairman, Don Allan. 

A disguised master of ceremonies 
intrigued the audience even after his 
moustache tickled his lips beyond his 
endurance, revealing the tall, lanky, 
twirler, Ace Thayer, who led a fast, 
inspired cast through moods of frolic 
and debauchery. 

The "Varieties" was really varie-

Incidental music, written by Her-

music the same mixture of modernism 
and ancient Hebrew melancholy and 
despair that Bridie has woven into 
his play. A musical finale at the end 
of the first act changes from a sort 
of dirge to a joyous near-wing rhythm

The "Gay Nineties," we call them 
in America, those halcyon days of the 
last decade of the nineteenth century. 
An age of expansion, of high hope, 
when Nationalism had flowered into 
Imperialism. But it was an exores- 
cence rooted in decay, the social or- 
der, which had reached its most ad- 
vanced stages in Europe, bore a bit- 
ter fruit and yielded a bitter har- 
vest. It required the flames of the 
First World War to sear the golden 
raiment of "civilization" and expose 
the underlying basis, the sordidness 
and bestiality of the social structure. 

Turning to the music of Cesar 
Auguste Franck, or "Father Franck" 
as he was called by his colleagues and 
students, lofty austerity and serenity 
are discovered as the dominant moods 
running through all his work. "Pre- 
lude, Chorale and Fugue," a recent 
Columbia Masterworks release, sym- 
pathetically played by Egon Petri, 
is one of the two compositions for 
piano solo that Franck composed in 
his maturity. One is made aware of 
the deeply religious character of the 
old organist of St. Clotilde's in 
Paris. Written at the age of r>8, only 
two years before his greatest work, 
the Symphony in I) Minor, this piano 
solo is the product of a man, advanc- 
ed in years, but with the vital spark 
of creativeness still unquenchcd. 

Franck's work is serene but not 
spectacular, imbued with spiritual el- 
evation, but lacking the drama of 
emotion, a true reflection of his char- 
acter. He was not the pushing sort, 
he was content to await the judg- 
ment of posterity, if he could not gain 
the appreciation of his contemporar- 
ies. This recognition was slow in 
coming, however, for, nearly a score 
of years after Franck's death in 
1800, R. A. Streatfield's "Modern 
Music and Musicians," published in 
190(1, contains not a single reference 
to Franck or any of his compositions. 

Modern critics regard him as the 
founder and leader of the modern 
national school of France. The Gallic 
character of his work is demonstrat- 
ed in its extreme lyricism, but, illus- 
trating the dialectical unity of op- 
posites is his utilization of the rev- 
olutionary innovations of the German 
experimenters in harmony. But fun- 
damentally, the music of Cesar 
Franck is rooted in the religious 
chant, and his writing, whether for 
the instruments, or for the orchestra, 
is a magnification of that chant by 
means of modern harmony and coun- 

This work stands with Frank's 
"Symphonic Variations" among the 
masterpieces of piano literature. The 
Chorale follows More's dictum," . . . 
the fashion of the melody doth so 
represent the meaning of the hing." 
It contains a bell-like theme of fall- 
ing fourths, ami rising seconds, con- 
veying an impression of distant 
church chimes, heard from a mountain 
top. It is .suffused with pious mysti- 
cism, profound, searching seriousness, 
often toeing itself in brooding,

breeding problems, and discussion of 
specific projects suggested from the 
experience of members of the class. 
The courses annually draw students 
from all New England, New York,

State Team Captures Its Third 

Successive Victory of 
the Season 

State's harriers added the Spring- 
field Indians to its growing scalp col- 
lection last Thursday, 20-2'.», but al- 
most lost its own in the process as 
('apt. Kimball and Putney failed to 
capture the nod for the first time in 
three meets. 

The Indian's leader, Badrow, show- 
ed a clean pair of heels to the field 
as he swept to an early lead that re- 
sulted in a clean 11 second victory 
over his teammate Booth. Four 
Statesmen swept the tape in Booth's 
dust as Putney, Greene, Kimball and 
McDonald tied. At least they tried to 
tie. The judges thought differently- 
Morrill took 8th place.

Another in the annual struggles 
between the freshmen and sophomore 
classes is scheduled for this after- 
noon, when footballers representing 
their respective classes meet on 
Alumni Field's gridiron. T highly 
touted yearling eleven, which after 
tying Mount Hermon in the season's 
opener ran roughshod over Williston 
Academy, will be meeting a squad of 
only twelve sophomores, many of 
whom are still recovering from Sat- 
urday's encounter in the Sabrinas 

However, what the sophomores may 
lack in number, they make up in 
quality; Eb Caraway's charges pre- 
sent a star-sparkled forward wall 
and a standout first string backfield 
quartet. At the flanks, Johnny ('rain 
and "Curly" Steeves show a formid- 
able wing offense and defense. Bill 
Mann, still going strong after his 
superb iron-man play in th« Amherst 
contest, will share with George Fer- 
guson the tackle duties. Ed Warner, 
fully recovered from the injury in- 
curred in the aforementioned pond 
party with Amherst, has been assign 
ed the left guard post and John 
Storozuk the right guard post. Lee 
Porretti will fill the center slot. Ed 
Larkin will call the plays for this 
outfit, featuring the rushing and 
punting of Gil Santin while Stan 
Salwak and Herb Gross will unveil 
a grand repertoir of bucking and 
passing plays. 

Blessed with one of the best fresh- 
men backfield to come up in a decade, 
Coach Prigard expect! to spring a 
dazzling passing attack on the sophs. 
Although the frosh are still without 
the services of Joe Masi and prob- 
ably will lose Gordy Smith hecause 
of a dislocated shoulder, the passing 
of Race and Borowski should make 
the contest a wide open affair. Kd 
Fiileli, Mob O'I.eary, and John Marry 
irive the frosh three more potential 
"gainebusters." The surprise package 
of the freshmen this year has been 
the pass -snatching of havie Ander- 
son. It should be an interest ing con- 
test when the passing-attack of the 
freshmen meets the rushing attack 

of the sophomore brigade. 


Coast Guard Favored by Virtue 

of 27-7 Victory Over 


Still dripping with last Satui day's 
muu, the Massachusetts State foot- 
ball team will travel to New Lon- 
don, Connecticut Tuesday night to 
try and swim through Coast Guard. 
The Cadets are possessors of a pow- 
erful eleven, holding a decisive vic- 
tory over the Wesleyan Cardinals 
who in turn defeated the Lord Jeffs. 
Cadets Strong 

In last year's night encounter the 
Statesmen chalked up a 0-0 victory 
over the Middies. However, last 
year's result doesn't mean a thing 
in predicting this season's game. This 
is especially true, since the Academy 
team upset a highly favored Wes- 
leyan squad to the tune of 27-7 in 
last Saturday's drizzle and mud. 

Coast Guard 

In Rufe Drury the Cadets possess 
a kicker who should give our own Gil 
Santin much competition in that tie 
partment. In the line the Middies are 
well fortified with Captain Louis 
O'Neill, George Meemer, and Bob 
Walters showing the way. State's 
lineup will be the same as the one 
which started against Amherst last 
week except at left tackle where 
Lou Wolk may start in place of the 
injured John McDonough.

Indians once. 

However, the real race for the div- 
isional title will be between Mhode 
Island and Connecticut. Maine, which 
won last year, will not be a serious 
contender as the two neighboring 
states battle for the title. Rhode 
Island heat Connecticut three weeks 
ago by a scon- of 18-40, which is like 
winning a football game 14-0. A bal- 
anced team strength turned the trick 
OH that occasion. Yet individual stars 
get their chance to shine in large 
meets where men of the calibre of 
Wheaton and Mobins of Connecticut 
will weave through the less cagey 
runners to move to the front. 

Against these stars will be arrayed 
Kimball, Putney, and company. The 
team cannot be sold short, they have 
a fund of experience, Kimball pro- 
mises to run a more sedate first mile, 
Putney's ankles are still "un-sprained" 
in short, the team is ready for a per- 
formance that may surprise their 
opponents. State won't win. Mut it 
won't be far behind.

Kolony Klub 

Kolony Klub adds its list to the 
Saturday evening festivities by hold- 
ing a most successful "vie" party. 
Perhaps somewhat inspired by a new 
victrola, or just the joy which never 
lacks at such joyous occasions, the 
students and guests made the most 
of it. 

The chaperones for the evening 
were Professor and Mrs. Smart, and 
Mr. and Mrs. Barnes.

Stockbridge 13— Kimball Union 
Last Saturday, November 2, on a 
field of mud in driving southeast 
rain, the Stockbridge Aggies toppled 
the previously undefeated Kimball 
Union Academy, 13 to 0. Early in the 
fust (luarter, after a series nf suc- 
cessful line bucks, Tony Carota went 
Over the goal line, scoring points. 

Prom then on the Stockbridge team 

played offense football with the line 
showing their Capabilities at tackling 
and opening holes in defense. Be- 
cause the ball was so slippery, there 

was very little paning, and the brunt 

of the action took place on th» line. 

In the second period Captain Watts 

look the SOggy ha'l over for the sec- 

ond goal, but the attempted place- 
ment conversion failed. In the second 
half Kimball Union went back on 
their haunches and played mostly de- 
fensive football until the final whistle.

DEEPEST Last week our editorial referred to the work of 
APOLOGIES a certain Mr. Petty for a certain Magazine, in 
connection with a suggestion of pictures to he 
made available for students' rooms by the Academics Activities 
Board. We have since been informed that Mr. Petty does not work 
for Esquire, as lie is suffering from a breakdown. 

Undoubtedly nervous prostration after having heard of the 
plan proposed at State! 

COLLEGES Today's convocation audience heard a college 

FOR DEFENSE president tell them that the main problem of 

modern education was correlation with the 
national emergency program. Last summer President Baker of- 
fered the facilities of the college to Governor Leverett Saltonstall 
for aid in national defense. A college defense hoard has been ap- 
pointed to cooperate with state and federal agencies. 

President Moore, of Skidmore College, stated that in edu- 
cation concessions must be made, specifically that idealism, ab- 
Stractness, and theorization be utilized and respected only to the 
extent to which they produce action. 

He added that the scientific schools were coming to the fore, 
due to their limitation of scholarship to the effective and practical. 

All of which in aggregate foretells the coming of an educa- 
tional revision. It seems that the realms of pure thought and ab- 
stract ness must be foregone until the "mud and blood" effects 
of down-to-earth scientific realism have made it safe for the 
milder pursuits. 

Students at Massachusetts as well as other colleges, can 
expect to find growing emphasis on military and scientific sub- 
jects. Openings in those fields will increase. 

It is only reasonable to assume that the field of education, 
as well as government and industry, will be turned to serve the 
ends of national defense. While we may not have come to college 
to be a soldier, and may feel that our desires are in other direc- 
tions, the time has come to face an issue, not of "Shall we pre- 
pare," but "Hair shall we prepare." 

BOSTON We did not succeed completely in securing an Alumni 
ALUMNI Homecoming Day but we did succeed in arousing con- 
siderable interest at least among the alumni. For the 
second year the Boston Alumni Club is sponsoring a barn dance 
with the proceeds going to the Alumni Scholarship Loan Fund. 

More notable still is the fact that the night before the Tufts 
game the same alumni group is sponsoring a rally and dance in 
Somerville. Nothing like this has been attempted before and the 
venture is certainly a commendable one. 

Boston alumni have long been active in their support of the 
college, .'specially so in recent years with their contributions 
toward the new dormitories and the more recent buildings on 

Yes, the Boston alumni are very definitely interested in the 
college and their efforts in its behalf have been praiseworthy

Last week a terrific earthquake 
ihook Rumania, an earthquake which 
might alter the complete course of 
the war. This "act of God" really put 
quite a kink in the plans of the Axis 
or smashing the British Empire in 
he Mediterannean by way of Turkey 
and the Near East Heir Hitler had 

his powerful pieces all arranged on 

the European chess-hoard so that Rus- 
sia, the main harrier to German ex- 
pansion eastward, would play hall or 
else, A powerful German army had 
been concentrated on the Polish- Rus- 
sian frontier, an expeditionary force 
had been Set up in Northern Nor- 
way, facing eastward toward Russia, 
a new powerful flank position had 
been attained to on the coast of Pin- 
land, and about 1,200,000 German 
troops had been installed in Ruman- 
ia. Russia recognised the threat of- 
fered by Germany's strong position 
so she sent M. MolotofT on a journey 
to Germany, since Hitler held the 
whip hand, to come to an understand- 
ing with the German Reichstag gov- 
ernment, and yield as little as pos- 
sihle. It looked like he would have to 
yield quite a bit, even so far as bring 
ing Russia in as an Axis partner, 
when the earthquake ruined Ruman- 
an oil supply sources, wrecked trans- 
portation and communications, of the 
">,<)()<) square miles on which the Ger- 
man army had been jockeyed into pos- 
ition, and so weakened Germany's 
thrust eastward, that we doubt 
greatly whether MolotofT will com- 
mit Russia as an Axis partner, in 
ipite "f what the Germans and Ital- 
ians are claiming. 

Other factors which ought to 
be taken into consideration in 
judging whether Russia will soon 
be an Axis partner are the fol- 
lowing: 1. Re-election of Pres- 
ident Roosevelt which signifies 
continuation of l*. S. firm stand 
as regards foreign policy and re- 
doubling of war supplies to Brit- 
ain. 2. Failure of the Italian 
Army to blitzkrieg Greece and its 
definite effect on Axis prestige, 
particularly in the Balkans. 3. 
Victories of General de Gaule, 
leader of the "Free France" 
movement, in French Indo-China 
and French Equatorial Africa. 
Friends, don't be too hasty in as- 
suming that the hammer and sickle 
will soon be beating against Britain. 
Since the earthquake has shuffled the 
cards, our guess is that MolotofT is 
now holding more than a few high

There has been much talk, serious 
and otherwise, about the band the 
military boys signed up for their 
ball. Few people know enough about 
the unit to say anything worth quot- 
ing, and the rest seem to think it's 
a wise choice. 

The first thing you've got to get 
through your head is that for the 
amount of money the Military Ball 
Committee has to spend they can't 
buy you Glenn Miller or Tommy Dor- 
sey, or even Tommy Reynolds. They 
can't buy a band that has had enough 
advertising spent on it so that every- 
body and his third cousin knows them. 
Just because a band isn't known does- 
n't mean that it isn't good. 

Hal Mclntyre has been a three year 
favorite at Lake Compounce. He has 
brought the same thousands of peo- 
ple back for more, year after year, 
and his thirteen piece outfit will 
probably turn out to be a standout 
among Military Ball bands of the 
past and present. 

The only difference between a lot 
of local bands, and the ones booked 
out of New York, is the booker's push 
behind them. Thousands of dollars 
are spent for radi > time, recordings, 
new. paper ads, flyers. All this, to 
convince you that a band you've never 
heard in your life is just about tops. 
You know that a great many people

Shades of Shakespeare 

Professor Frank P. Hand happens to be a supporter of the 
long-lived pun. At Radcliffe, we are sure, he would be in his glory. 

RadclirTe, home of great minds, has two professors worthy' 
note. In a Government class an instructor said that "It takes 
a lot of horse sense to make a stable government." And from 
the English department, "Free verse is nothing more than the 
triumph of mind over meter." 

And They Huffed And Puffed 

For years and years the Connecticut Valley has been ravaged 
by gusts of HOT AIR. Strangely enough, there is a total of over 
200 faculty members teaching at Amherst College and State Col- 

A much-needed addition to science in these parts, 
an instrument — known as a sounding balloon theodolite 
and used by Admiral Byrd on his last Antarctic expedi- 
tion has been purchased by Amherst College for its 
astronomy department. Students in meteorology and 
naviagtion will use the apparatus for determining wind 
velocity and direction over the Connecticut Valley. 

Of course, Professor Glick will shake his head, thunder like 
Socrates, and insist that using this sort of implication is decidedly 
FALSE LOGIC. But, then, with our scholastic average of 68 and 
3 8ths, we may merely have a case of "sour grapes" in leading 
our hypothetical readers to believe our theory that "the <*& 
professor is a dead professor." Therefore, we modify our asser- 
tion: professorial gusts of hot air are not great enough to ■ 
measured by theodolites. We hate to exaggerate.

Speaking of bull sessions, one prominent professor -aid

Formation of Eastern Paper 

Association is Being 


In the celebration of its seventy- 
fifth anniversary, the University of 
New Hampshire has laid plans to in- 
clude in the festivities a conference 
of the leading college newspapers 
from twenty-nine major colleges and 
universities of New England. The 
purpose of this conference is to form 
an "Association of New England Col- 
legiate Newspapers" — an association 
that is much desired at the present 

Need for such an organization 
springs from the basic differences in 
New England and western journalism. 
The majority of New England college 
papers are in tabloid style, and ad- 
here to the more conservative types 
and makeups, modeling the New York 
Times and other standard dailies. 

Included on the program are talks 
by the important men of newspaper- 
dom, round table discussions on all 
phases of the tabloid world, an in- 
teresting tour of the University's 
beautiful campus, and a combination 
banquet and dance. 

Massachusetts State College will 
probably be represented (December 
13 and 14), and, in the future the 
College and "The Massachusetts Col- 
legian" will undoubtedly be vital fac- 
tors in the successful coordination of 
New England undergraduate journal- 

In the west, journalism standards 
have changed radically, leaving the 
\ew England members of the Asso- 
ciated Press in a class not too-well 
considered by the national press.

Dear President Coding: 

Owing to the new ruling of the 
State Building Inspectors, they will 
not allow us to put in chairs for our 
Community Concerts. We oversold 
our house, to some extent, depending 
on these extra chairs and now that 
we can not have them we are placed 
in an embarrassing situation both to 
our own members and also the mem- 
bers from other associations to whom 
we wish to extend reciprocity. Under 
the circumstances I thought I ought 
to let you know that we would not 
be able to seat your member! if they 
came over, rather than to let th-ni 
take the trip and be disappointed af- 
ter they got here. 

However, Amherst members will be 
welcomed to stand in the rear of the 
hall and occupy any vacant seats af- 
ter the Pittsfield member* have been 


We regret this more than I can tell 
you, but trust you understand the

Professor S. Stevenson Smith, edu- 
cational counselor for the American 
Society of Composers, Authors, and 
Publishers, author, educator, lectur 
it, and theater critic, delivered a 
lecture in the CM ('hapel on Tues- 
day on the subject "The Fine Arts 

in a Democracy." The program was 

one of a series arranged by the Fine 
Aits Council. 

The speaker made a most favorable 
impression upon the audience of 
interested students, members of the 
faculty, and friends. 

In his lecture, Professor Smith 
dwelt on the importance of safeguard- 
ing the intellectual properties of 
composers ami writers who in a de- 
mocracy are without the subsidies 
provided under other f ■.inns of gov 
eminent for persons of nenius. He 
discussed particularly the United 
Slates Copyright Law. 

Among his statements in the dis- 
cussion of music, Professor Smith re- 
marked that he realized that jazz had 
its place in the music field, ami was 
the result of our metropolitan life. 

"American poetry, art, and music-," 
he said, "is becoming of age." He 
hoped, also, that American folk ways 
will soon be Inc orpo r a ted in a place 
of prominence. 

This lecture was only one in a 
series living made by Professor 
Smith throughout the country before 
club and college audiences.

Who worte this fiendish 
What right had he to write the 
Against our helpless ears to fling 
Its crash, clash, cling, bing 
bang, bing? 
This rather clumsy jingle would be 
rejected by the Collegian Quarterly, 
but the Boston Herald saw fit to print 
it on the occasion of the first Ameri- 
can performance of Le Sacre du 
Printemps by Igor Stravinsky in 
1924. But the members of that Paris 
audience, at the world premiere of 
the ballet, did not express their re- 
action by a lifted eyebrow and a few 
lines of rhyme, but by catcalls, (the 
French version of the raspberry) 
and, as the evening wore on, and 
their tempers wore thin, by a full- 
fledged riot. 

That performance has gone down 
in history and like a great battle or 
an important assassination, is now 
surrounded by a vast body of legend. 
It is said that an irate Frenchman, 
considered the applause of a member 
of the German legation as a national 
affront, and gave him a couple of 
healthy shoves, and nothing less than 
an official apology could soothe the 
ruffled feelings of the German govern- 
ment. One American survivor of the 
fray reported that during the height 
of the excitement, he felt a tingling 
sensation in his scalp. He was great- 
ly surprised, he related, to discover 
that, for a number of bars, a young 
enthusiast in the row behind has been 
beating out the tempo on his temples. 
The idea for this ballet came to 
Stravinsky in a dream, not, as 
one would expect of a composer, 
in musical form, hut as a vision. 
He had a vision of a young wom- 
an dancing before a group of an- 
cient men, men who were brittle 
and dry, almost petrified, with 
the weight of years. The young 
maiden was dancing herself to 
death, a sacrifice to the god of 
spring. The theme so impressed 
the thirty-year old composer that 
he immediately embodied it in 
music, elaborating it to symbol- 
ize the worship of the forces of 
nature by primitive man. 
Stated in these terms, there seems 
little cause for riot and bloodshed, 
but the story is only half told. A sug- 
gestion as to the type of music Stra- 
vinsky wrote is given by Cecil Gray, 
the English critic. He labelled "Rite 
of Spring" "An attto da fr, in which 
music is bound to the stake and sacri- 
ficed f«»r refusing t<> recant her 
opinions and convictions." These are 
harsh words, but a generation of Am- 
erican and South American compos- 
ers, who have been fascinated by 
Stravinsky and his daring musical ex- 
periments, have not taken Cecil's 
words too seriously. 

Perhaps the essence of the com- 
ments both pro and con is contained 
in the dictum of a French critic, 
"The cult of the false note has, never 
boon practiced with such zeal." The 
music of "The Rite" is deenly rooted 
in Russian folk song, but the inspir- 
ation and the treatment of these 
themes comes from pagan, fire-Chris- 
tian Russia. Columbia recently re- 
corded this work with Igor Stravin- 
sky conducting the Philharmonic- 
Symphony Orchestra of New York. 
Hearing tins music is an experience 
not soon forgotten. It is not beauti- 
ful. The hundred-throated orchestra 
gives voice to a cry that is hardly 
human. It is the sound emitted by 
a half-human beast as he emerges 
from his cave and feeling the warmth 
of the sun, knowing that the terrors 
of winter arc at an end, participate! 
in the upsurge and burgeoning of

Junior Writes Home to Mother Again And Tells 
Oi Experiences at Thatcher Dance and Date Plans 

Dear Mother: 

I got your letter this morning. I 
was so happy to see that you sent me 
a dollar and a half for my books. 
I really hate to spend so much for 
them, but you just can't help it 
around here. Before I forget, please 
send me enough money to take care 
of my trip to New York, last week- 
end. I guess thirty dollars will about 
do it. I had a lovely time. 

Mother, I wish I could do some- 
thing to help Prexy's dog. I guess 
someone must have stepped on it. At 
least its stomach hangs down and 
humps on the ground every time it 
takes a step. Perhaps they could put 
a stick along its back from its head 
to its tail and then tie the stomach 
up to it. 

Oh, mother, what shall I do? So- 
rority rushing is this week, and the 
sororities are having dances. But 
Cynthia has appendicitis and so I 
haven't got a dale! Mother, how do 
you get girls to invite you to dances? 
I watched one girl trying to get a 
hoy to invite her some place, but I 
can't make my eyes do things like 

Perhaps if you sent up my violin, 

I could serenade the abbey. I'd cer- 
tainly get at least one offer that way! 
Of course there is that girl that was 
up at the Thatcher Hall dance the 
other night. It seems that all the 
boys were suposed to kiss their girls 
at nine fifteen. Well, my girl wasn't 
with me just then, and some Betty 
must have mistaken me for her date, 
'cause she swung me around and 
kissed me. It was nice. I don't think 
her hoy friend likes me. Do you think 
she'd invite me? I think she speaks 
French, too. 

Mother, I've been waiting for the 
library dance to be announced, but 
I haven't heard anything about it yet. 
They took all the furniture out of 
the main hall long ago. I don't think 
there will he much work to the dance. 

The orchestra can sit. on the itain 

and then we can dance all over the 
libe. Perhaps they might even take 
out the tables in the study halls for 
US. Wouldn't that he swell? I guess 
maybe then I'd find out why they call 
the libe a date bureau. Maybe Mr. 
Wood would he a chaporone. 

But if they aren't going to have 
a dance there, I wish they would put 
back the litle benches with the cute

tory reported in detail on fields in 
which students may be trained for 
war time occupations, research for 
war-time or preparedness programs, 
and extension service programs. 

"The college is prepared to train 
students in a variety of war-time oc- 
cupations," the report stated. "Train-

being offered on a peace time basis 
and could be intensified in time of 

The list included the following oc- 
cupations: airplane pilots (the college 
is participating in the C.A.A. pro-

caring for transport animals and for 
preventing spread of animal disease; 
housing technicians; and soldiers. 

The college research program, ac-

spoilage, disinfection, etc.; industri- 
al research in chemistry, bacteriology. 
Civil engineering, lumber, pulp and

In the field of adult education, the 
report stated that "the normal work 
of the extension service could be in- 
tensified in time of war along the 
lines of food production, distribution, 
and conservation. The extension serv-

Here are four typical reports:

of philosophy and religion, declares 
that an increase in registrations for 
Bible courses reflects upset world 

Looking for "basic values to which 
they can hold," college students over 
the entire country have evidenced in-

Smith college, Northampton, Mass., 
because of events abroad which pro- 
hibit foreign study and threaten to 
eclipse European arts, has started a 
new course, "The Arts in America." 

It will deal with painting, archi- 
tecture, sculpture and the minor arts 
as an expression of American thought 
and taste from the colonial period to 
the present. 

At Central Missouri ( Warrensburg) 
State Teachers college, it is noted 
that interest in German courses is 
remaining at a high level, a situa-

Harry Scollin revealed further 
facts concerning the Military Ball 
which will be held Dec. 7 in ye olde 
Drill Hall. The committee is working 
hard to make this dance the best 
event sponsored by the R.O.T.C. unit. 
The feature of the evening will be the 
election of an Honorary Colonel, the 
feminine angle of the army. 

Favors will be awarded to the girls,

the feminine guests. Decorations are 
under the supervision of professional 
decorators, New England Interior

Music is the central theme and the 
Committee promises a good band in 
the person of Hal Mclntyre and his 
orchestra. The group consists of IS 
men and a female vocalist, always i

known as a house band at Lake Com-

for the large attendance at Corn-

Mclntyre is better known as one of

The melee at the starting gun had 
the pack of 18!> runners tearing down 
the first stretch in a jam that looked 
like Coney Island on Labor Day week- 
end. Rhode Island's Pub Nicholas 
blasted every course record from the

just what they can do about the per-

meet of the year, when Northeastern, 
which took third place in the New 
England's Monday, turned the trick, 
State will be pointing for its fifth win 
of the fall season. 

Trinity has one standout man, Caf- 
frey, who may be the flea in Coach 
Derby's chicken broth tomorrow af- 
ternoon. He beat the very good 
Springfield star, Radrow, three weeks 
ago and may take a lot of beating 
before he falls before Chet Putney's

track-wise circles is the splendid run- 
ning being turned in by the only 
sophomore on the squad, Russ Mc- 
Donald. Putney and Kimball are ex- 
pected to turn in cracker-jack times 
each meet but McDonald's habit of 
driving his short legs down through 
that last mile to grab a high position 
has his team mates realizing that 
Russ will win more than his share. 
However, tomorrow .sees State los 
ing the tall, quiet Chel Putney as lie 
draws the curtain on his college cross 
Country racing with this meet. The 
senior from Vermont, who captained 
the club last season, will be out fol- 
ios fourth win of the season tomor- 
row. Mot a picture runner, in fact, 
probably one of the most "pounding- 
est" runners ever to draw on a shoe 
in the local locker room. Putney, 
nevertheless, has a plucky heart that 
fights until the last ditch is crossed. 
Some track stars get cocky. Its an 
occupational disease. Putney just 
grins slowly and observes, "Yeah, we 
were lucky to win." Another senior, 
hard running Dick Hayward, runs 
his last race tomorrow as his third 
varsity season closes.

The Massachusetts vs. Rens-

cast from Station WTRY, 950 kilo- 
cycles, on Saturday at 1 :4."> p.m. 

In one of the most evenly matched 
contests of the season last Thursday, 
B varsity-studded sophomore brigade 
of gridsters just managed to push over 
a score in the fading minutes of the 

last period to beat a sensationally de- 
fensive frosh eleven <!-(). The sopho- 
mores Could only roll up four first 
downs against a likewise meagre total 
of two for the yearlings. The cleanly 
played affair was marred by an in- 
jury to Hemic ISorowski, star full- 
back, who suffered a fractured hand 
in a pileup. 

The feature of this great defensive 
spectacle was the four yard plunge 
for the game's only touchdown by Ed 
Parkin scoring on an olf-lackle 
smash. Poroswski's bucking was the 
feature attack of the freshmen until 
he sustained the injury which has 
shelved him for the rest of th" sea 
son. Moth Fideli anil Pace made the 
stands roar on two occasions; each 
returned punts for forty yards be- 
fore their scamperings for touch- 
downs were halted by last ditch 
tackles by the valiant sophs. Hesides 
shattering the ozone with fifty yard 
punts, Elly Pace caused Eb Cara-

have been consistent in losing, but the 
Engineers have shown that they too 
can have off days by submitting to 
a sensational upset defeat at the 
hands of a Worcester Tech which hail

Despite the fact that State toyed 
with Worcester, prospects for another 

victory do not look bright. The eleven 
emerged unscathed from the battle 
with Coast Guard on Tuesday eve- 
ning and will be in fine shape for the 
R. P. I- tilt. Cil Santin has his toe 
polished in anticipation of a punting 
duel with Fred Sehnatz, captain of 
the line iiwers. Penny Freitas showed 
that he still could buck that line in 
'he Coast Guard game by smashing 
over in one his inimitable oil' tackle 
drives. The State forward wall looked 
weak against Coast Guard in stop- 
ping end runs as well as center rush

Coach Nelson's 'Tutemen will be 
highly rated because a team that can 
win seven straight games is not bluf-

tet features a superb triple threat in 
Don Moopes, and the Nelson crew 
can show as a sign of its consist nt 
success the brilliant blocking of its 
captain, Fred Sehnatz.

the field against Massachusetts for 
the last game of their series will be 
composed mainly of men who I

Stockbridge i\ Wentworth 

The Stockbridge football team de- 
feated Wentworth Institute of Bos- 
ton last Friday, 6 to 0. Scoreless un- 
til the final period, the Aggies turn- 
ed the tables in the last 40 seconds 
of play. Recovering a fumble on the 
Wentworth 86 yard line, Captain 
Watts hurled the ball into the end- 
zone to be picked out of the air by 
Nicholson. The attempted placement 
conversion failed, being blocked be- 
hind the line of scrimmage. Last 
year's Stockbridge-Wentworth foot- 
ball game was won by Wentworth un- 
der the same circumstances: a suc- 
cessful forward pass into the end- 
zone during the last minute of play. 
Again Coach Ball put out a winning 
club which played offensive football 
from start to finish with Nicholson 
starring at running and scoring. 
Every week the prospects of down- 
ing Deerfield on November 22 look 
brighter. Much of the team's suc- 

cess will depend upon the support you 
give the boys when they meet the 
New York Aggies, this Friday at 
Alumni Field. So come out and back

News, news — yes — plenty of news. 
Hut we are beset with the problem 
of culling out what is vitally import- 
ant, reviewing it, and cramming it in- 
to about 15 inches of space. — To us, 
one of the most jarring bits which 
the papers did not play up was a 
bulletin from Washington which fol- 
lowed a strike at the Vultee Aircraft 
Plant in Los Angeles. Bulletin: The 
National Defense Commission will 
take vigorous action in the labor dis- 
pute between the Auto Workers 
Union and the Vultee Aircraft Com- 
pany if it thinks defense is being im- 

Can labor preserve its independence 
in this preparedness era Will major 
industrial plants engaged in "de- 
fense" work soon begin hiding behind 
the slogan of "national defense." and 
definitely uproot one of the most im- 
portant stones in the foundations of 
Otlr democracy, the right of labor to 
unionize, strike, and bargain collec- 
ively. With all the big money being 
ipread around by the government to 
nivate industry, and with this great 
general uplift of all industrial en- 
leavor in this country, it seems to us 
that the workers, the producing ele- 
ment in this time of activity arc en- 
titled to a definite degree of consid- 
eration. More questions, in the fu- 
ture, how far will the government 
back up the encroachments of money- 
liungry industrialists on the rights of 
the majority, the working class? Will 
workers eventually have to resign 
themselves to increased hours, no va- 
cations, bad working conditions and 


WHOSE Several weeks ago there was outspoken criticism by 

MOVE the student body concerning the action of the Student 

Lite Committee in limiting- the number of vie parties everything else that goes with the 
on cainnus hustle bustle of stepped up produc 

',.. - ,. , ., _. . . T .- - tion, and be convinced that it is nec- 

We went to bat against the move, and the Student Life Com- L 98ary f ,„. the Kood of thc nation 
mittee asked the Interf'raternity Council to submit recommenda- 1 and not for the good of dividends paid 

tions concerning tlte move. 

This week we have learned that the Interfraternity Commit- 
tee has never submitted recommendations, and therefore the Stu- 
dent Life Committee has no recourse of action. 

You can't have what you won't work for.

PRE-EXAM "A definite improvement in the situation will 

EXAMINATIONS be effected this year," stated Dean Machmer 

in reference to the great number of hour ex- 
aminations which yearly make their appearance immediately be- 
fore final examinations. 

Dean Machmer stated that the problem had been called to the 
attention of a faculty committee, and the Honor Committee will 
also take an active part. 

An examination scheduled for the semester in hour exams is 
also being studied. 

In the past, instructors have piled on assignments and exams 
until students have hardly been able to prepare for extensive, 
comprehensive finals. 

COUNTRY A summary of scheduled dances reveals that there 
CLUB are 1 16 dances and vie parties on the docket. At first 

glance, it seems pretty high. But of this number, 95 
are fraternity vie parties, 27 sorority vies, and 19 of other organi- 

This breaks down into approximately four vies per week, 
and one formal pel' two months. For 1100 students, we don't 
think that is a bad proportion. 

Dances are certainly one of the most approved forms of so- 
cial activity, and if they are eliminated, then something must be 

And if they are eliminated here, we'd like to have half inter- 
est in one of those places that is going to benefit!

out to select groups of stock-holders? 
To us, indications point in this direc- 
tion. Will we be proven wrong? 

Now for some stuff grabbed from 
lure and there — Nazi bombings of 
Coventry last week and Burmingham 
this week give us a belly-ache at the 
thought of like attacks on Washing- 
ton, D. C. — Britain showed her fist 
to Italy at Taranto last week. Re- 
sult: Italian fleet weakened. Britain 
can transfer part of her Mediter- 
ranean fleet to the Atlantic or off 
Singapore — Did you know that Vice- 
President Wallace speaks Spanish 
fluently. Very good for our future 
Latin-American relation. — Last week, 
Stephen Foster, composer of Ameri- 
can folk music, was elected to the 
Hall of Fame for Great Americans. 
Flashes just grabbed off the radio: 
— The great German liner Europa, 
once holder of the Atlantic crossing 
record, has been bombed amidship 
while at dock in Breman — Hungary 
is being forced by the Axis to join, 
presumably so that Germany may ex- 
tend complete military domination 
light to the frontiers of Greece and 
Turkey. We wonder if this move came 
as a result of the Russo-German 
meeting last week— Greek pleas to 
the U. S. for arms and munitions, if 
answered, will of necessity have to 
mean curtailment of our supply to 
her ally, Great Britain— Thc first 
draftees have already arrived at 
Camp Devcns, 246 strong, which 
brings us to a cute bit picked up from 
the Boston Globe. 

"The American buck private, 11*40 
model, rides in Pullmans, sleeps be- 
tween sheets, has earmuiTs for cold 
weather, eats turkey dinners, and gets 
the highest soldier pay in the world. 
The War Department is reported 
working on secret plans for a top 
servant W M will say 'Please.'" Gee, 
we can hardly wait.

People either like or hate Duke 
Ellington's music. There's nothing 
half way about their feelings, and 
that's simply because there's nothing 
half way about his style. Duke's 
style is something unto itself because 
it calls for performance as well as 
simply composition. Might we at this 
point add that this is what makes 
his music so different from that of 
Glenn Miller. This what gives it so 
much life, color, Hesli and truth. 

Puke likes elegance in his music, 
hut doesn't get it cold and static in 
sn arrangement. It is dependent up- 
on people who put their lips to the 
horn at the right time. His heart is 
in his music, his music is in his heart, 
and he wears that heart on his sleeve. 

Duke's newest Victor recording of 
"Warm Valley" is an example of ele- 
gance through spontaneous emotion 
rather than through prescribed or- 
nateness. It is one series of choruses, 
or just short themes passing from 
one soloist to the other, while the re- 
mainder of the ensemble gives a lift 
and background in strong unity. 
"Warm Valley" has themg, mood, 
color, life, and subtlety which will 
have listening charm long after the 
musical robts have melted their cyl- 
inder heads through their blatancy.

Rushing is over once agaii 
everyone is more or less happy — and 
yet it seems to us that another year 
should not be allowed to roll aroHnd 
without some change in rushing rules. 
First of all, the secrecy of the whole 
procedure is absurd. We wonder >\ 
actly how much is gained by friend- 
ly "calls" on freshman girls mA 
the "I was just dropping by US* 
thought I'd say hello" guise. Ti I 
freshmen are neither dumb nor blind 
— and certainly the upperclass wom- 
en do not enjoy conversational de- 
mands under such adverse ConditiflM 
And its value may be questioned, si 
think — exactly how well either party 
may judge the other is definitely de 
batahle. Snap judgments are the in- 
evitable result, and many girls wh- 
are young and unpoised, who an - 
and reserved, or who simply do 
have anything to say to four or 
strange girls passing the tints of 
with them, are many times disregard 
-d merely because of the presetil 
rushing system. 

After all. why not bring ru>l>

prospective pledges? Open the 
house* to girls from the begin- 
ning of school — let them come 
and see the girls and the houses 
under the everyday conditions in 
which they shall have to live. In- 
vite them down once a week for 
tea, restrict the tea expense in 
all fairness, and give the fresh 
man girls until May or June to 
decide just exactly where they 
wish to go. Upperclasa girls may, 
in turn, know the freshmen bet- 
ter over this extended period of 

And there is really, we think, no 
particular point in Open and Closed 
Date efforts. It would seem to us 
much wiser and much less artificial 
to spend the money on weekly house 
teas to which all freshmen girls are 
welcome. Then, all at the same time 
late in the spring, sororities may 
write notes to girls whom they wish 
to pledge — and the freshmen may do 
as they please, unprejudiced by any 
one-week glamour and confusion. 
Under these conditions we might be 
Sble to reduce any semblance of ill 
Feeling betwen houses to a minimum, 
and perhaps in time abolish this do- 
or-die sorority rushing week spirit 

St least for the sake of the pom 
freshmen on the other end of it. 

"There is no hard and fast rule 
that a fraternity is limited to one 
vie party per month," declared Prof. 
Clark Thayer, head of the Student 
Life Committee, At the same time 
I'rof. Thayer announced that this 

misconception was probably due to 

the fact that permission for vie par- 
ties was refused to several fraterni- 
ties during the second week of rush- 
ing on the grounds that they had had 
a dance. 

During the past year there have 
beer 96 vie parties at the various 
houses which gives an average of one 
per month per house. This figure does 
not include the dances Sponsored by 
the Senate or other organizations.

COSBY'S BARBER SHOP the shop that well groomed men prefer 









by Irving Kabinovitz 

History moves, we are told, not in 
circles, hut in spirals. Consider this 
interesting parallel: 1814, Austria, 
teachers exempted from conscription; 
J!)4<), U.S.A., college students (for 
the current academic year) granted 
deferment from selective service. 
This interesting bit of trivia is drag- 
ged in by the fail, not to introduce 
an essay on "How to Compute Your 
Chances of Being Drafted," but to 
introduce Franz Schubert, Viennese 
composer extraordinary. 

Schubert violates the proverbial 
concept of the young composer, pov- 
erty-stricken, miserable, conscious of 
his own merit, denied recognition by 
the world. Aided by his family, young 
Franz suffered no privation. He was 
unaware of the superiority of his mu- 
sical creations. Thus, in his early 
years, at least, he lived a normal 
happy life. 

k Columbia Masterworks has re- 
cently released his Symphony 
No. 2, in B Flat Major. Played 
by Howard Barlow and the Co- 
lumbia Broadcasting Symphony, 
it is by far the best of the al- 
bums Columbia has presented for 
review this year. Well-paced, re- 
markable for its clarity and true- 
ness of tone, this work deserves 
a place in every collector's rack. 
The symphony itself is a product 
of Schubert's eighteenth year. 1815, 
his (imuiH tnirahlis. It is not a great 
work; it is immature and imitative of 
his great predecessors. But life is 
not so short that we have time but 
for the masterpieces of music. Why 
not stroll through the Valleys before 
we attempt the ascent of the peaks? 
Taking the symphony movement by 
movement, we can see the various 
influence that combined in his mu- 
sic. The first movement. Allegro 
vivace is Mozartian in character. The 
second, Andante, reflects "papa" 
Haydn. It has a stirring theme, 
which, if it has not been so already, 
would make a splendid Alma Mater 
song for some college. (The refrain 
"Amherst, brave Amherst, is taken 
from Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata.) 
The third movement, Menuetto, re- 
flects Haydn, also. The Finale, Presto 
Vtvaoe, contains elements taken from 
Viennese folk songs and is a fitting 
climax to this product of youthful 

It is obvious that this symphony is 
a transition work, showing the de- 
velopment from the classical tradi- 
tion to his mature work as a great 
Romantic composer. The headlong 
dash of the Finale, with its gallop- 
ing tempo, brings to mind the poetry 
of Coethe in his Romantic youth: 
Hasten thee, Kroiios! 
On with clattering trot! 
Quick, rattle along, 
Over stock and stone let thy trot 
Straightway lead into life. 
Sdiuhert's second symphony leads 
directly into the work of the mature 
man known to millions by his "un- 
finished Symphony,"

"The good old days," you know,

off the greeting cards with or.' • en-

Not For l's 

Imagine how ducky it \.ouLl «>e to 
awake Thanksgiving morning and 
find yourself bunking in one of those 
one - room - first - cousin's-to-a-stable 
where our worthy forebears dwelt. 
No doubt it snowed during the night 
and you are literally sleeping under 
a "blanket of snow." After all, there 
are cracks in the best of houses. 
These are "the good old days." 

With the house colder than an ice- 
cream plant would you get up and 
turn on the steam heat? Hardly, 
since there is no steam heat. But there 
is an adorable brick fireplace and 
forests of wood outside to chop. If 
you work fast, you might stait to 
thaw out while splitting kindling. 
Besides this is Thanksgiving. You 
need a blazing early fire for the din- 

Ah, yes. The dinner. That promises 
to be Ma's masterpiece and is the 
feature of the day. But first there 
are cows to be milked, chickens fed, 
and horses to be cared for- -all of 
which keeps you busy the morning 
long. No hanging around the kitchen 
and sticking your finger in cake bat- 
ter or sampling the dressing. You 
don't even have a chance to chop nuts 
or read the latest adventures of Sup- 
erman. Many things come to those 
who wait, and these are "the good 
old days." Remember? 

Blitzkrieg. 1K00 

Dinner, served promptly at noon, 
is really gratifying, but it's an old 
Indian custom to stage a hlitzkreig 
at Thanksgiving and you have to be 
ready to grab your gun and run to 
the gua id house on the first signal. 
Sometimes there isn't any raid at all 
and that is the greatest misfortune 
since the only pastime that remains 
is looking through family albums and 
listening to the ticking of the grand- 
father clock. Once in a while, if per- 
mission is granted by the Governors, 
you may shovel your front yard a 

After such an exciting day you will 
naturally be worn out and feel for 
going to bed at sunset. The storm per- 
sist! and the wind has increased. In 
fact, the house is a regular wind- 
pocket and in order to hold the bed- 
clothes down you have to pile chairs 
and stools on top of them. This is 
hardly comfortable, but you cannot 
expect to be warm and comfortable 
at the same time. These are "the 
good old days."

There had to be pioneers to build 

stone fences, maybe, but we are 
thankful for 1!M0. Not that we would

And for this We are thankful.

Sophomore Strength to Provide 

Mainstay of Team — Bush

Under the spirited coaching of Lou 
Hush, the Massachusetts State bas- 
ketball team has been slowly round- 
ing into shape during the past two 
weks in preparation for the season's 
curtain opener with Trinity on De- 
cember 10. A very experienced nu- 
cleus of twelve lettermen led by cap- 
tain Bill W'alsh, ace guard, give 
Coach Bush a very excellent basis 
for building up a good team. 


A wealth of material is present 
from the sophomore class which 
shows six lettermen. Ted Bokina, 
towering six-foot-six giant, shows 
great potentiality at the center post. 
Kelly, Bubriski, Malloy, Turner, and 
I'odolak are also mainstays from last 
year's successful frosh aggregation.

The final game of the Massachu- 
setts football season takes place this 

Saturday at Tufts College. Here at 
the local gridiron nothing but shad- 
ows, stands, and goal posts remain 
to tell of past defeats and triumph. 
The feeling of desolation is acute, 
when one looks out over the field and 
sees nothing but the last few leaves 
of a dead autumn whirling madly 
across the green. The last practice 
sessions of the year take place to 
day . . . and then there will be none 
. . . not until spring of next year. 

On the heels of the rather disas- 
trous football season comes basket- 
ball. Last year's green team did not 
do so well, Winning only one game — 
that against Tufts. The quintet this 
season is expected to make a much

in the New England Championships, 
were able to beat the Statesmen as 
they took the season's opener. State, 
however, went on with a rush from 
there and toppled Springfield, Wor- 
cester Tech, Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology, Amherst, and Trinity 
in rapid succession. 

It isn't easy to account for such a 
standout season. A large SQUad that 
furnishes ample replacements ll need- 
ed for a good season. Ask any coach. 
Yet, State had just five men, and 
occasionally a sixth, that could be de 
pended upon to score points. If one of 
the five had so much as turned his 
ankle the entire Complexion of the 
season might easily have been chang- 

What, then, made the season out- 

standing. Was it good coaching. Yes, 
it was all of that; Coach Derby 
knows his cross country coaching bet- 
ter than any one of a half dozen col- 
lege coaches right around us. Any of 
his men will tell you that. Hut it was 
more than coaching. Unless the drive 
and punch in his men is there the 
best coach in the world looks like a 
guy named Joe. 

sibly better runners warm up un- 
noticed. His teammates call Capt. Hill 
Kimball a "pretty good leader." 

This Amherst boy, elected captain 
while only a sophomore, began writ- 

practice sessions. There's 
nothing like fencing to coordinate 
the muscles and build a strong and 
supple body, be it male or female. 

.Massachusetts is one of the few 
colleges that does not have a team. 
It would be a simple affair to have 

ing, in early August, a series of let-, meets with the rival swordsmen from 
ten to every varsity candidate giving Amherst, Springfield and point* east. 

So let's hear a little more from the 
fencers. V.n avant! 

him hints on early season training, 
telling him of prospects, giving him 
the news on other candidates. In 
short, Kimball bagaa to sell the idea 
of a good season to his mates just a 
little sooner and a little better than 
an ordinary leader would have. 

However, the season began with

Chosen to Mask State's

"With color and originality 
throughout, the Military Ball 
promises to be one of the more 
memorable social events of the 
year," said Chairman Harry 
Scollin yesterday. Tomorrow 
night at the Drill Hall Hal Mc- 
Intyre's Band, thirteen musici- 
ans with Shirley Lee and Jim- 
my Motto, vocalists, will sinj? 
and play for the only formal of 
the semester. The Military Hall 
with its novelty programs, un- 
ique favors, and colorful deco- 
rations will feature the tradi- 
tional election of the Honorary 
Colonel of the Massachusetts 
State College II. (). T. C. 

The Hal Mclntyte Hand, which 
will play at the ball, appears reg- 
ularly at the lake Com pounce Tl»*I?- 
ioom in Connecticut. This band has 
had many successful seasons „t the 
lake, it is reported that the Hal Mc- 
Intyra Hand has played for record 
crowds at the pavillion in Bristol, 
Conn. Attendance was not equaled 

even by the "big-name" bands ap- 
pearing there. "These facts show the 
changeless popularity and the ability 

of the hfelntyre Rand to reaiiv 'gfve' 
when it comes to entertainment and 

smooth dance music," added ('hair- 
man Scollin. 

The arrangements used by the 

band are Glenn Miller arrangements. 

Those persons who know modern 
music will recall "Tuxedo Junction" 
and "Crosstown" in their Glenn Mill 
er form. "Smooofh Stuff,' is quoted 

ss a description of their playing by 
Chairman Scollin.

We finally succumbed! That new 
brick edifice that's been slowly tak- 
ing shape up on the bill aroused our 
curiosity to such an extent that at 
last w t - waded through the drifts to 
get a close up of its condition, with 
the result that now we hold a great 
admiration for any working crew who 
can bring order out of such chaos 
as we saw. However, we wen- as 
lured that there was no question but 
what the new dormitory would be 
ready "on time." 

The building is buzzing with ac- 
tivity, with many different project

By Milton 

Greece, a former pawn for the im 
perialists of Britain and France, a 
country one very vaguely associated 
with fruit stores, and nude statues 
of muscular men and beautifully de- 
veloped women, has suddenly come 
to the fore to prove itself a country 
of heroes in whom the blood of the 
ancient Hellenes of Marathon still 
surges. How is it, why is it, that the 
Greeks, a nation of only 7,000,000 
people, can successfully withstand 
and then take the offense against the 
might of Italy, a nation of 43,000,- 
000 people which bases its present 
day existence on Fascism, the code 
of the warrior-hero, and the winning 
of laurels through armed conquest. 
It is astounding, but neverthless, 
there it is. The Italians who original- 
ly set out, confident of an easy vic- 
tory against a comparatively de- 
fenseless people, now find themselves 
driven out of Greece, and at the 
present writing, beating it head over 
teakettle out of Albania. Just imag- 
ine, the Greeks freeing the Albani- 
ans from big bully Italy? How? Why? 
Well, for various reasons. 

1. The British have come through 
with more help than was expected, 
menacing the Italians greatly. 

2. The Italians were so cocksure 
of themselves, they didn't adequately 
prepare for the campaign. 

8, The Italian mechanized equip* 

ment was highly unsuitable for use 

mountain districts with resulting 

Snowfall and ice has turned thought! to winter, 
and consequently toward the annual Winter Car- 
nival. Foremost attraction will be the ball, at 
which the best possible name band will be presented. 

There has been a regulation limiting the amount of money 
Spent for a band to $450. For the past several years, this limit 
has been a handicap to the carnival. The event is the best at- 
tended of the college year, and could well swing a bigger and 
better orchestra. Last year, enough was cleared to add nearly 
35 r 'f to the limit. 

The problem seems to be that tradition and present attitude 
oppose raising the limit. We, and we believe we speak for the 
majority of students, feel that the use of surplus funds for a 
better band, is worth while. 

It has been suggested that if a profit is made, the price of 
the dance should be lowered. We feel that the great majority of 
students would prefer to pay the same price, and have one of the 
top bands. For instance, at a price of $600, bands such as Vaughn 
Ifunroe and Will Bradley can be secured, while $150 is a limita- 
tion to second class colored outfits, and neophytic combines. 

A limit should be simply to protect the individual student, 
and eliminate dance profiteering. With the same limit of $1.50 
per student, the quality of the dance can be greatly improved. A 
growing college and increased enrollement makes more money 
available without any increase in price. 

Within a short time, the carnival committee representatives 
will consider the problem with the faculty on student life. They 
will present the student's side of the case in an effort to have the 
limit raised. 

With interest and fame growing, the winter carnival has 
progressed to an event of some significance in college circles. 

With a situation that sees colleges such as Bowdoin hiring 
the same bands we have for major dances for house parties, then 
it is time that social evolution here begins to accompany growth 
in other directions.

! 1 HYTHM 


The student conducted Red Cross drive on campus is to 
be concluded in a short time. It is not yet too late to 
add that small change 1 which may mean even the differ- 
ence between life and death for some one somewhere. 

Under a new system, quotas of fifty cents per student were 
set, and collection was done through fraternities, sororities, dor- 
mitories, and individual approach. 

Most of the (piotas are at present under par. A list of all 
houses and dormitories, with their percentages of the quota, will 
be published at the conclusion of the drive. 

slaughter of Italians. 

4. Italians tried a Mitzkreig a la 
Hitler, and. through clumsy hand- 
ling of the Navy and Air Corps, over- 
extended their lines deep into Greek 
territory where they met with stif- 
fened morale, heroic resistance, and 
then fell into hasty retreat. 

Since Britain has occupied the is- 
land of Crete and other strategic 
Aegean islands, thus giving her a 
very advantageous point for control 
of the Mediteiannean, Palestine, 
Egypt and Africa, as well as help 
for Greece, it is expected that Ger- 
man troops, as soon as Italo-Gei -man 
supply routes are Interfered with, 
will come whipping down through 
Yugoslavia toward Salonika, and 
thus Greet will be established as the 
battleground for the coming winter. 
And don't argue that most of it is in 
ruins anyway, or we'll swat you. 

Well, what happened of importance 
last week? 

Joe Kennedy resigned as Amhas 
sador to England. Why resign at this 
"rucial p eri od, Mr. K.? We guess 
your conservatism just couldn't stand 
the strain over there — When Lord 
Lothian asked Washington for finan- 
cial aid last week, he was cited the 
Johnson Act forbidding loans to 
World War debtors, and gently re- 
minded that the U. S. would con- 
sider acquiring British West Indian 
possessions for cash. We bet milord 
nearly took a fit at that one — Henry 
A. Wallace, American Vice-President 
elect was greeted in Mexico with 
bricks, riots, and cries of "Death to 
Cringas!" \'im Almnzitn, when he 
went to attend the inauguration of 
General Camando, recently elected 
president. l>id General Avila Caman- 
cho, who still insists that he is the 
people's choice, incite the riots, or 
were they stimulated by Nazis work- 
ing up strong resentment against 
Uncle Sam? What's just around the 
corner is as plain as, well, — our name 
on the Dean's Board list— The Vul- 
tee strike was settled, yet '-umor has 
it that legislation will soon be en- 
acted to keep the defense production 
factories open, and free from sab- 
otage. With enactment of this legis- 
lation, we will just about be in a 
state of necessary military dictator- 
ship. — 

Now for some stuff just off the air 
waves. — Talk of a separate British 
peace with Italy is very strong, 
thanks to the Greeks. — English sourc- 
es have announced that unless the

Into this column. This, in spite of the 
fact that the business end of the mu- 
sic game is one of the foulest, dirti-

State has been very lucky in its 
dealings with the bookers in bring- 
ing decent bands to State in spite of 
financial handicaps as Imposed upon 
the free disbursement of committee 
funds. We've had Artie Shaw, Glen 
Miller, Benny Carter, Al Donahue, 
and Don Redman, to mention a few. 

There have been times however, 
when State has gotten the dirty end 
of the stick in stacking committee 
men up against a booker's wiles. It 
wasn't too many years ago that 
Fletcher Henderson's band was book- 
ed into the drill hall for a big dance. 
The band took the stand and was 
playing along in approved style. 
Gowns, corsages, starched shirts, and 
satin lapels flashed by in approved 
and unapproved styles, and everyone 
was very happy. Until, . . . someone 
in a car outside turned on his radio 
to a dance band, and heard, "We are

college's recipient of tlu> Dauforth Summer Fellowship. 

Balance your college career with this Fellowship which en- 
ables you to meet new friends, to travel, to broaden yourself, and 
to see the practical working of large industries in the Midwest. 
Those of you juniors interested may obtain detailed information 
and application blanks at Dean Machmer's office in South College. 
"1 would like to see more juniors try for the Fellowship this 
year," says the Dean, "and I am certain that it will give the 
junior chosen very much more advantages in his college educa- 

Last summer I had the honor of receiving the Summer Fel- 
lowship; I would be glad to explain the trip to any junior inter- 
ested. The value of the Fellowship grows every day here at school, 
and the friendships made at St. Louis are invaluable. I will never 
forget Ohio's Gene Kandel, Canada's Bert Willoiighby, Montana's 
Lloyd Schmitt, South Carolina's Pinckney Eve, New York's Stub- 
bie Borden, or Louisville's Pappy Lynch. The Fellowship is a high 
spot in any junior's life.

Outing Club 

The Massachusetts State College 
Outing Club formed final plant fol 
their weekend trip to Stratton Pond 
with the R. P. I. Outing Club at a 
meeting Wednesday evening. Howard 
Hunter, president of the Outing Club, 
said this overnight trip is to be one 
of the outstanding events of the sea- 

Arrangements also were made for 
the joint 4-H Outing Club party fo 
be held December 13 at the Drill Hall. 
Jean Brown and Lotties Heermance 
are in charge of the affair. Final 
plans have not been completed as yet, 
but they will be announced later. Tho 
Outing Club wishes to announce that 
the office is open from 12:30 to 1 
Monday through Friday. 

It has been observed that many 
students now participating in Aca- 
demic Activities do not have a very 
clear idea of the basis on which 
awards are made at the end of each 
year, and therefore may unnecessari- 
ly jeopardize their chances of leceiv- 
ing an award. For the benefit of such 
students, the rules governing Aca- 
demic awards are reprinted here: 

1. A silver award to be awarded to 
each individual earning eight cred- 
its in one or more activities. 

2. A gold award to be awarded to an 
individual earning fifteen credits 
in one or more activities. Credits 
used for silver award may also 
apply toward gold award. 

3. Upon the acquisition of a total of 
twenty-five credits in one or more 
activities, the gold award already 
received may be decorated with a 
diamond chip. 

The credits to be awarded the 
manager Of each activity, and the 
editor-in-chief (in the case of a 
publication) shall he determined 
by a committee made up of the fol- 

a. The Faculty member of the 

Academic Activities Board 
who is chairman of the Com 
mittee for each Activity. 

b. The Coach of Managers. 

3. The Faculty Coach in charge 
of the Activity. 
The credits to be awarded all oth- 
er participants in each activity 

shall be determined by a commit 
toe made up of the following. 

a. The same individual as undei 


b. The faculty coach in charge 
of the activity. 

c The manager of the activity,

billiard necromancer from St. Louis, 

whe will appear at the Game Room

at S:(Mi p.m. ranks among the all-time 
greatest cue aces. 

Holder Of the world's fanes shot 
cue title and recognized as the game's 
foremost authority are only two of 
his many accomplishments attain- 
ed during his 46-year-old billiard 
career. "Pete" is the cueist who made 

the billiard expression "Show -Me-A- 
Shot [•Cant-Make" famous; being 
the originator of the saying. His fan- 
cy shots number around 55(1; the two 
most widely-known being the "Dol- 
lar" and '•impossible" shots. 

A few of his record-breaking feats 

include making KM) points in Bfl sec 
onds, 1,000 points in 1 minutes and 
27 seconds, and 20,000 billiards in 
OaM hour, 11 minutes and eight sec- 
onds. This was done by the competi- 
tive-barred "chuck nurse." He has 
played in an airplane at .".,000 feet 
and going 12f. miles per hour, scor- 
ing 100 points in 17 seconds at that 
altitude; balanced three billiard balls, 
one on top of the ether and bal-

Moreover, he is a former red-ball 
champion; former instructor to the 
billiard king, Willie Hoppe, has re- 
fereed over 500 championship tour-
